Getting towards the end of my fish-less cycle. Nitrate spike is on it's way down. My readings today PH 7.6 NO2 0.25, NO3 30, Ammonia 0. Do I need to let the nitrite hit zero before I add more ammonia, or go ahead and add now??????

HI dfisherman, sorry, your font is kind of hard to read. Maybe it's my old eyes.

Once your ammonia hits 0, add 1/2 as much as you started out adding.
The bacteria need to ammonia to continue to grow and live.

Agreed with Lucy. Your font is hard to read lol. And yes, continue to add ammonia. The bacteria that convert ammonia and the bacteria that convert nitrite are different, so both need to be fed.

Will not use impact font again. Thank you for your quick reply. I'm so close to the end and I'm nervous I'm going to screw it up.
