    Hey all.

    I am cycling a fishless cycle tank for brackish water.

    I got the ammonia up to between 2ppm - 4ppm. and used stability for the last 7 days. As of yet My ammonia hasn't moved, but this isnt want im worried about, I know it takes a while.

    Here is my concern.

    Temp: 80
    PH 7.6
    KH 9
    Ammonia 2ppm - 4ppm
    Nitrite 0
    nitrate 0 question/concern.... My GH i tested, I counted the drops which I gave up when the test vile was full at 55 drops.

    Is this ok for brackish water? could this stall the cycle? What is the best way to get it down?

    water source?RODI? OR tap? what salt are you using?
    In my experience stability works better with fish then with out just takes longer for bacteria to seed.
