    75 Gallon Tank No nitrites ???

    I am currently doing a fishless cycle. The last time I tested water parameters was on 8/18 with results at ammonia 0.25, nitrite 1.0, nitrate 5.0-10.

I did some research and now know 7.5mL is the correct dosage for my tank. I do have 5mL syringes, so next time...

    I put a black background on my tank…. I obviously didn’t think it through. Now my pretty betta only shines when he is near the bottom and in the light. Other times he looks like a black blob in the tank .
