Nitrates dropped in newly cycled tank

Newbie1234

I have a newly cycled ten gallon and all of a sudden my nitrates dropped to zero.

Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrate 0
I just want to know if this is normal or what.

Do you have live plants in your tank? My nitrates will sometimes drop to 0 but I notice a lot of new growth on my plants at the same time. Plants use up waste in your tank too.

Yes I do and they have been growing really fast.But does mean I don't have to worry?

I wouldn't worry about it then. Do you have fish or invertebrates in there yet? You may start seeing the nitrates again once you do.
