Hi everyone, I am still somewhat new to the aquarium hobby (only two months in), so I'm still learning about handling my tank's nitrogen cycle. I need some advice from all the expert hobbyists out there, please. My brand new 15g tank is only two months old, and is still cycling. I've got six platy fish living in it now, and all are doing well. I'm also in the middle of a full-on bacteria bloom. Here's what the water looks like: I've tested my water parameters, and here they are: High Range PH Ammonia Nitrite Nitrate My questions are... How far along is my tank in its cycle, and any idea on when it will be fully established? I'm sooo confused right now because I'm getting high readings in ALL THREE toxins at the same time. How is that possible? I thought by the time you started testing positive for nitrate, you were supposed to read ZERO in ammonia and nitrite? But as you can see, the water is testing high in all three. Am I doing something wrong?
