I have a newly set up aquarium, Sat. will be 2 weeks. I added 4 fish after 2 days, that was before I found this website, and the all seem doing well. The pH is at 7.0, ammonia is 1.5, and no nitrites have appeared yet.I have been adding stress-zyme every seven days as instructed on the bottle. The ammonia has been at this level for about 3 days and has not gone up and no sign of nitrites. Why is it the ammonia level will not cycle. I probably should have mentioned this at the beginning, My name is Juan. I have a 29 gallon tank and as I mentioned, there are 2 platys and 2 mollys in the tank under the advice of the genius at the pet store where I purchased the aquarium. I have read the water should cloud up as the ammonia level spikes but that has not happened yet. Is there something I need to do or stop doing.
