Unfortunately, I was misinformed when I got my fish and had to pursue cycling with a fish in the tank. I do water changes and feed sparingly but my ammonia just stays high. I have checked my water source and there is 0ppm of ammonia.AquaticJ said:How are you cycling? You shouldn't be seeing 4 ppm of ammonia if that's the case. It would make sense to see 0ppm of ammonia, 4 ppm of nitrites and 40 nitrates. Or all three at the same time. It's odd you have that much ammonia and nitrates, but no nitrites.
