Hello, I am in the process of cycling a new tank for the past week and a half now. I have another tank that I tried to use the sponge filter on the new tank to help speed up the cycle. I dosed with Dr Tims ammonium chloride solution (5 drops each time for my 5 gal), but thats it. My readings are currently: 25-.5 ppm Ammonia, 0ppm Nitrite, 5-10 ppm Nitrate. Ammonia readings have been fairly consisten over the last few days, which leads me to believe i am not yet cycled. I am confused as to why there are no nitrites appearing on any of my readings over the last week. I tested my tap water to confirm there are no Nitrates present (came up 0 ppm). Is it possible that the tank is “mostly” cycled? Ive read on other posts here that the nitrite -> nitrate bacteria can take longer to establish than the Ammonia->nitrite. But again that confuses me because I am seeing Nitrates already. Thanks for the help!
