I nuked my tank due to too much planaria and thought it would kill my cycle, but I guess it survived. Right now it reads: Ammonia 1.0 ppm Nitrite 5 ppm Nitrate 40 ppm. A few days ago I added TSS+ not knowing having fish in the tank is required to keep the bacteria alive (right now im doing a fishless cycle). So should I go out and buy a betta to do a fish in cycle? Those readings seem toxic for a fish to live in or does TSS protect against that?
