I have been cycling for a month. Started fish in, but due to some bad advice lost the 4 fish. My tank readily consumes 1ppm ammonia in 24 hrs, but both nitrites and nitrates end up through the roof. It has been in this state for 2 weeks at this point. I have tried water changing to get the levels down like is suggested in the stalled cycle sticky but it did not help. It talks about depleted minerals in the water being an issue so I am wondering if the fact that the GH test only takes 1 drop could be a factor? My KH test is 8 drops, and pH stays stable at 7.5, not matter what happens to other numbers.
