There are many instances of cycles not seeing nitrites. I think the key indicator is that a certain ammonia is converted to nitrates within 24 hours with zero ammonia or nitrites left.
When fishless cycle you have to add ammonia to keep that bacteria alive.
HI all, I was so surprised by the support on this forum previously. Thank you so much for your input and the shared learning experience. For those of you that are interested in my little project here, I had to begin the cycle again. It’s taken some time as I’ve been in and out of exams although on the 22nd of May I began the cycle again. I had set the tank to exactly 28 degrees Celsius. Adding water conditioner, then dosed the tank to 2ppm ammonia. It has stayed consistent ever since. My readings 5 days later are in the photos below. With the readings of my nitrate, nitrite, ammonia and the pH. The beneficial bacteria had also been added. Let me know what you guys think and if I’m missing anything so far. Does this look normal ?
