Still cycling my tank it has been 4weeks and I have not seen any change for probably the last 2 weeks. I’m using API master test kit and getting about 1.0 ammonia .25 Nitrite and 5.0 Nitrate. I started the cycle with fish food but as I have read and learned it makes one heck of a mess. My question is rather than continue feed the tank with food can I use pure ammonia? I have heard that you should stop using ammonia once you see Nitrates. Is this correct or should I keep adding the ammonia until the tank can completely remove it on its own. Also if I need to add the ammonia at what level should I keep it to get this cycle moving?
