hey so I’ve had my tank set up with everything for maybe 2 weeks or more...

10g

I have been testing it everyday and now at this point I am so confused!

Parameters are:
Ni: 0.50
Am: 2.0
Na: between 0-5ppm

I haven’t added any more pure ammonia since it hasn’t gone down to 1ppm yet... it’s going very slowly down yet everything is present!

Hi! I just finished my first cycle. It took over 5 weeks I think. Being that you’re at week 2 I can just offer that your numbers don’t look too bad. Here are some of my numbers from the month of April.

4/9

Ph 7.6

Ammonia 2.0 ppm

Nitrite 5.0

Nitrate 5.0

4/17

Ph 8.2

Ammonia 0.50ppm

Nitrite 0ppm

Nitrates 10
It definitely takes a loooong time. Keep at it and ask lots of questions here if you get stuck. Everyone here has been very helpful to me!
