    Using Dr Tim's ammonia and his one and only. Had trouble keeping ph greater than 7 fir a bit so it slowed down the cycle. Back on track
    Ph 8, ammonia 0, no2 0.5, no3 80.

    Did a partial water change, used api stress coat plus, added more dr Tim's one and only.

    Should I redose the ammonia if the no2 is now below 0.25?

    Oh yes this was the day after having dosed with 2ppm of if I add more it would be the second day in a row.

    I would keep adding ammonia every time it goes down to 0.25-0 so your BB stays fed.

    Sounds like you're very close, though! Best of luck!

    keep ammonia dosed at 2ppm, until there's not nitrites at all.
