Hey guys, So after a recent failure with my 29ga and Tetra Safe Start (overwhelmed any bacteria if it was still alive in the first place) ive decided to do a 100% water change and get another bottle tonight. The problem is, my tap water has about a 2.0 ammonia reading straight from the tap, and im almost positive this ammonia plus the bottled ammonia in the Tetra accumulated with my tiger barbs waste and just turned my tank into on earth for any fish. My question is how can i get a cycle going when im starting with an ammonia source already in my water? Ive read old threads regarding Tetra Safe Starts ammonia threshold to be effective, and im worried ill always overwhelm it because of my water. I do have access to Reverse Osmosis, but i am also aware this is very soft water and not optimal for fish. Just for reference i took one last API test on my tank before i tear it down in an hour. PH: 8.0 Temp: 76° Ammonia: 2.0-4.0 (depending on light when reading results) Nitrite: 0 Nitrate: 0 This tank has been running for almost 3 1/2 weeks, has had two bottles of Tetra on day 1, and lost all 6 tiger barbs i started with. I have an aqueon 29gallon led deluxe kit with a 50 gallon rated filter, 100 watt heater, gravel substrate along with organic soil (i intend this to be heavily planted after cycling) Any tips or tricks? Thank you for reading!
