    Question about nitrites

    Thank you for all your help. That is okay as I am not in any rush. I will test the water tomorrow and if nitrites are the same I will start adding ammonia.

    Question about nitrites

    Sorry no, the company is rosewood. It is ceramic. I am embarrassed to take a picture because the water changes uprooted all the plants so it is messy. Thank you for all your help.

    Question about nitrites

    Thank you. I think it says to dose ammonia no higher then 2ppm. Do you know if I should do that? I wonder why I have nitrites in the tank if it is not cycling.

    Question about nitrites

    The nitrites are dark purple so I would say 5. I have pure household ammonia so I can add that. From reading that it sounds like I dont need to add ammonia. I may be just getting confused though.

    Question about nitrites

    Oh dear. Thank you for explaining. My tap water is 20 nitrates. It has 0 nitrites though so I thought the tank was cycling as the tank shows high nitrites. Do I have to start adding ammonia to cycle the tank?

    Question about nitrites

    Thank you. Does this mean I do not need to add ammonia? I am not in any rush to add a fish. I just wanted to make sure I was carrying on the cycle.

    Question about nitrites

    I am doing a fishless cycle. I did not know ammonia was needed with this as I have nitrates. They are 20.

    Question about nitrites

    I am cycling a fish tank using tetra safestart bacteria. I waited two weeks and ammonia 0, nitrates 20 and nitrites sky high. I changed the water using prime. 24 hours later nitrites have not changed. I have read the threads on here about using tetra safestart for a fishless cycle but I could...

    Betta not eating, white coming from gills?

    Hello I think she has gill flukes as her gills are swollen and white. She is not her usual self. I fed her baby brine shrimp but she kept spitting them out then gave up. I read API general cure treats gill flukes but I live in the UK and cannot get it here. Do you know what I can use instead?

    Thank you for all your help. It is a shame she will not eat any of the insects I bought. I have just ordered some. Thank you.

    Betta not eating, white coming from gills?

    I feed her one at a time with a dropper. No food is uneaten. I also fed the bugs with the dropper or tweezers. She seems to just love pellets.
