    No nitrItes at all. I tested nitrAtes the other day and it read 5 ppm, same as today. I tried out the test very early on and got the same reading, so I think the tap water contains some nitrate.

    This is a direct question about Cycling, but I decided it best to stick to the original newbie thread that I started.
    So, my ammonia levels are stabilizing. I did a 50 percent water change two...
  3. Okay. That sounds the easiest.

    Okay. That sounds the easiest.
  4. OK. Either way, I think it could be condensed a...

    OK. Either way, I think it could be condensed a bit. It's not optimal, but there would still be water flow through it.
  5. The problem is, I'll have to tear up this cheap...

    The problem is, I'll have to tear up this cheap hood to add another filter. I know I shouldn't remove the media that I have now, or I'll mess with my cycle. I do have one idea though. The replaceable...
  6. Yeah, this is what I have done. The test read...

    Yeah, this is what I have done. The test read .25ppm this AM instead of .5ppm, so I'm getting it under control. Hoping to get a nitrite read in a few days! I always dose with Prime.
  7. Yeah, the bio-media in this filter is kind of...

    Yeah, the bio-media in this filter is kind of crummy. I took it out and submerged it in conditioned water when I made the last change. I'll look into adding a supplementary bio-filter in the next few...
  8. Oh man, I forgot about keeping the media...

    Oh man, I forgot about keeping the media submerged. There's still the gravel, so I assume it hasn't totally killed my cycle?
    The thing with the water changes is, with the 50% change it's going from...

    I don't know if this changes anything, but there is a chance she thought I was talking about saltwater. Who knows though.

    Yesterday was a bit crazy because of a final, so I missed a water change....
  10. Okay, I'll put that on the to-do list! I just...

    Okay, I'll put that on the to-do list! I just wasn't sure if it was okay to start another one while I'm cycling. My friend and his kids(3 and 5) loved this red tail shark, so I want to be really...
  11. I'm really curious why the person at the shop...

    I'm really curious why the person at the shop told me not to water change and just dose with Prime. She told me that a drastic ammonia fluctuation would be harsh on the fish? Even though I don't know...
  12. In my previous area, there were some great shops,...

    In my previous area, there were some great shops, but many of them withered away(why is it always the beloved shops that close?). It's been a while, so I can't remember everything I did that was...
  13. Thanks for clearing that up on the water changes....

    Thanks for clearing that up on the water changes. I was 99.9% sure that they were needed for the fish in cycle, but the person I talked to at the fish shop threw me for a loop. So change the water as...
  14. Thanks! I've had many fish tanks in the past, but...

    Thanks! I've had many fish tanks in the past, but there was a lot of important things that I overlooked.

    I don't have the 55 gallon set up yet. I got in too late to get together all the things I...
  15. I was using an API test kit. I actually think it...

    I was using an API test kit. I actually think it was higher; around .75, but the reading after the water change seemed to be low if it truly was at .75 ppm before the change. Maybe I'm just getting...

    I love this fish! One day, I want to set up a dedicated tank for them.
  17. "exceptionally high chloramine concentration" and new tank question

    First question:

    On the Seachem Prime bottle, it says that you can add a double dose for "exceptionally high chloramine concentrations". What concentration would be considered "exceptionally high"...
