Hello again, I'm still cycling my tank, its been a long long while and I've posted two threads, one was during my introduction here as a newbie, and then another regarding my hard time with cycling. So I finally saw some nitrates but no nitrites still. I have never seen my nitrites over 0 ppm. So for nearly 3 months of cycling, I had 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, and 0 nitrates. I use only Reverse Osmosis water, as explained in another thread due to the town I live in is a copper mining town and there is sledge in the water. But so then I purchased Dr Tim's Ammonia to at least get the ammonia going in this fishless cycling, I then waited and waited and still no nitrites. Meanwhile I was doing the API master testing, adding bacteria etc.. I went and purchased Start Fresh for the heck of it, even though I was using Seachem products already, and believe it or not, a week in I'm finally seeing some change, but its only my Nitrate, I'm still at 0 Nitrites and 2ppm Ammonia. So I'm not sure of what is going on now. Is it possible that my tank was already cycled and I had a bad batch of the API Test Kit solutions for Nitrite. Can you have Nitrate without any Nitrites at all, the Nitrites have never once rose up. Also my Ammonia has not changed at all since I used Dr Tim's Ammonia, its still 2 ppm. My PH is around 7+. Thanks for listening and any help or suggestions.
