So, I understand the process of cycling and what there is behind it. I understand the process of Ammonia>Nitrite>Nitrate. The thing I don't understand and I don't seem to find a forum on it is that what about work arounds? I understand that Nitrate in small quantities is okay for fish, that being said, is there a possibility of having 0 across the 3 and having surviving fish? If you added nothing to the water but conditioner for your fish, and added a Fluval Ammonia reducer packet inside the filter and continuously having no ammonia, nitrite or nitrate, is there something that could actually kill the fish? If there is, what is it and why? This is something I cannot find discussed anywhere.
