Well I was happy to see nitrates in my water this morning. but my nitrites are holding steady...... maybe i'll see a change there tomorrow? here are my readings: ammonia 0ppm nitrites .50ppm nitrates 5ppm I planned to do a 25% water change today to make the nitrite situation more bearable for the guys, should I? i'm wondering if doing this will interfere with the cycle that appears to be starting to move finally. the guys are in very good spirits today! i think they are going to make it! i'm so happy, I keep stopping at the tank to say "hi guys, you look great! hang in there its almost over!"
