Hi. I’m on day #10 of cycling my freshwater tank. I’m ok with being patient, but wanted to ask if it’s “normal” for my ammonia to be at 2ppm for the past 3 days as the nitrite is slowly climbing (today at .5, yesterday at .25). I’m doing a fishless cycle using Aquavitro’s Seed and kicked it off with Dr Tim’s ammonium chloride. I stopped adding Seed after the 7 days per the bottle’s instructions, but wonder if adding a few ml of Seed will help move things along. Not sure if this matters for this question, but I have live plants in the tank while cycling, plus a few bladder snails that hitchhiked their way in on the plants. Thank you.
