So my cycle is stuck. I set up this dirted tank on July 16th, and it still hasn’t cycled yet. I have a ton of plants and a filter with cycled media in the tank. I also have ramshorns snails. The snail waste is how I got the cycle started to begin with. So after almost 4 weeks, I’m still getting ammonia readings. And what’s weird is I have also gotten nitrate readings upwards of 20ppm, so I know that the bacteria is there converting the compounds. Today I tested my water, again, and had readings of 0.50 ppm ammonia, 0 nitrite and 20-40 nitrate. Any suggestions on what to do from here? I really want to stock this tank with amano shrimp so this waiting is killing me. I’ve been doing weekly water changes every Friday since the setup (about 30-40%) but did end up doing some extra 50% water changes in between to try and combat the ammonia spikes. There isn’t any large die off from snails, so not sure why my ammonia is still reading something other than 0 while I also have nitrate.
