Hello! I am hoping this is the right place to post this! Soo....I started my fish less cycle on Saturday July 5th. I have a 55 gal tank. Then the worst happened where we got evacuated out of town for 2 weeks and I could not test my water. Came home July 19th and water is cloudy. Ammonia is still at 4ppm (what I started with) No nitrites either. I did add dechlorinator when I set it up July 4th. My question is...did I ruin the cycle by leaving or should I wait it out? Why is it cloudy? Should it take this long or should I do a water change and start over? Update: as of today Ammonia levels are still 4ppm. no Nitrites. I do have an air stone going and a heater. Thanks for all your help. I just can't wait to get fish!
