Ph is 6.6, ammonia 2. Nitrite2. And nitrate 160. Should I keep adding more ammonia or what number should I keep a ammonia at? I have babies coming so I really need this tank cycled.
Yes, baby fish hahaha. Sorry, I have a pregnant Blue Diamond Guppy that is strikingly gorgeous and she is abut 3 weeks pregnant I would guess. I bought her and mate from California breeder and they came in same bag....yikes. Had to set up another tank for fry when they come, wasn’t expecting her to be pregnant so soon.Babies as in baby fish? If so, when are they coming?
I have a ten gallon set up but had to put a a grandpa guppy in there because he was acting sick and kind of bloated so I can’t use any media from there as I am treating the tank.Do you have a cycled tank you could take cycled media from?
I have been adding Special Blend which is bacteria. My ph was 0 so I added ph up, thought maybe that had something to do with high numbers.You could try adding tetra safestart plus to cycle it faster. Just test it daily and when the ammonia is at 0, raise it again to keep the bacteria fed until the babies come.
I know what you mean, I have two 35 gal octagon tanks and one 10 gallon hospital tank.....cycling never gets easy!I sometimes manage to get mines down to all 0. People say that's not cycled, I say it's an amazing filter
