It's been a little over 4 months now & my aquarium still is not cycled...I've used an entire large bottle of seachem stability, I've also added in tetra safe start & have about 20 live plants & some pond snails...I still have no nitrate or nitrite readings at all/0ppm for both. My ammonia level was up to 8ppm for a while but I keep it around 2ppm now for the snails safety. 78°F & 7.0-7.5 pH (normally 7.2) hang on the back filter as well as sponge filter 3-4" of gravel, 33% water change weekly, alternate weeks between gravel vacuuming & filter cleaning not going both in the same week. My plants are doing awesome now (one of my banana plants has basically taken over the entire tank with its vines & lily pads) & I have a colony of hair algae that I keep under control every other day removing some but am absolutely not bothered by it whatsoever I actually think it's kind of pretty. What the heck am I doing wrong?
