Hi, im fish in cycling a 5gallom with a couple of little plants and a female betta, using seachem prime and stability. its been about 4 days now, and the current reading is 0 ammonia, 5ppm nitrites and 10/20nitrate. Ive been doing 50% water changes daily, in fact i just did one. I had ammonia yesterday which is now gone which is good but the nitrite is still highest on the chart, i checked just after doing a 50% water change and its still 2ppm! Should i stop dosing stability or keep going for the 7 days it says to? And should my nitrites go down eventually? i read somewhere it could take a few days even, my cycle is happening pretty fast so im hoping it wont be that long..thanks for reading.
