I am still cycling my tank I think. It's been 4 weeks now. It has a betta in it who seems fine and active. I finally have nitrates at approximately 5ppm and my nitrites reached 0ppm now... but my ammonia is at 1ppm or maybe even more! It's hard to tell. I know my tap water has 1ppm ammonia... but I feel like my nitrites have never been higher than .25ppm also. I have been changing 20% water every other day at least with added seachem prime. Sometimes more. I don't know what to do. Is my bacteria dead somehow? Since none of them are converting it to nitrites anymore? Thanks.
