Hi everyone! I posted a few weeks ago about my snail not doing so well and wondering why my tank was not cycling. Anyhow -- I just got back from a week vacation (the previous week I had added StartSmart Bacteria cycle product) and voila! I now have 0 ammonia, 5 ppm Nitrite (EEK!!) and 10-20ppm Nitrate (before I did the water change it was like 40ppm. OMG). I have 2 candy cane tetras, 2 white skirt tetras, 1 bleeding heart tetra, and 1 red tail shark and 1 nerite snail. 29 gallon tank no plants. I am happy to see my ammonia is 0, but the PWC did not budge the Nitrite levels and Nitrate is still high. I feel like I have a pretty decent understanding of the nitrogen cycle, and it seems like I am in mid cycle. I added prime to my water change water so nothing should be toxic (I hope). So...is it okay to add a few more fish? I wanted to add a few top dweller fish but I am nervous because of my nitrite and nitrate levels. If the bacteria is clearly processing the ammonia, will it really effect anything if I add a few more fish since all I am waiting on now really is for the bacteria that eats Nitrite to start doing it's thing??? SIDE NOTE: Grandma was feeding the fish once a day while I was gone, but I think she really spoiled them because my shark is fat!! That could be why the nitrite level is high??? I am going back to feeding every other day.... What do you all think? Can I add a few more??
