    Agree with gronlaura - when cycling with ammonia, you should always let the ammonia drop to 0 before adding more - unless you've already been doing that.

    How much ammonia were you adding? Sounds like perhaps there is too much in there?

    Maybe try do a small water change to bring it down to 1.0ppm and see if it starts to drop after that.

    Ph doesn't stay stable during cycling - perhaps you have been adding too much ammonia? Sometimes that can stall cycling.

    A tiny tank like that wouldn't need more than an initial reading of 2ppm...

    Cycling with fish in the tank is a longer process than doing it with ammonia (fishless).

    Cycling involves providing a source of ammonia to grow & feed bacteria in your filter. The ammonia is...

    You have more than enough in there to cycle the tank. That's an interesting mix of fish - how long have they shared the tank? Have you seen any aggression between any of them?

    I agree with the above - I started off with a 46gal bowfront and as a "beginner" I left filter choice up to the petstore employee since I had done "zilch" research beforehand. I got a Fluval 305.

    How many fish are in there right now?

    As long as there are enough fish producing enough ammonia to keep the ammonia at .25ppm, the tank will eventually cycle, though it will take a while - first...

    A stalled cycle means you should not be putting any new fish into the tank until your water parameters read 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites & 20ppm or less nitrates. Unless you already know all this, a tank...

    Just curious what kind of filter you have, what kind of media is in there and when is the last time you cleaned the media?

    I'm sure you know how to clean the media, but just curious.

    If the OP has goldfish, no heater is needed. But agreed, a filter needs to run 24/7 and the water should be changed weekly, about 50%, adding dechorinator each time.
