Hi! I’m a beginner, and I am fishless cycling a 20g tank. I’m wondering if I could give the water from the tank to my lawn and plants after a WC. I know that, *normally*, tank water is great for plants because of the nitrates, etc. However, I am wondering if it’s ok **during** a cycle, since my nitrites are very high.

PS: I know really high nitrites and the resulting ph issues can mess with the cycle... I’m working on that.

Thank you!

Absolutely yes, My plants have never looked better since I started watering them with the water removed from my tank. I started using the water while it was still cycling .... even during the time the nitrites were sky high.

I also use the water on my plants and they look better since I started.
