Ok, so I got my water test today, and here are the results for the two tanks I am cycling. 55 gallon (been cycling for 7 days) Ammonia- 2.0 ppm Nitrite- 0 ppm Nitrate- 0 ppm 10 gallon (been cycling for 8 days) Ammonia- 0 ppm Nitrite- 5.0 ppm Nitrate- 5.0 ppm I excited to see the 10 gallon numbers. The Ammonia seems awfully high in my 55 gallon. Both tanks got gravel from my LFS (different tanks though), and both have shrimp in them. My boyfriend got a little over zealous and put 3 shrimp in the big one, do you think that will affect the cycle negatively? I could take some out. Let me know what you think! Thanks.
