Ok. Dosed 1.5ml ammonia. Will test again tomorrow.
Today July 29 24 hours later:
Dosed again 1.5ml of Ammonia shooting it hopefully back to 2ppm.
Do you think it's taking a little long? I do have 12 plants in the...
During a cycle can you add back water that has evaporated from your tank?
Thanks Gronlaura. Your a big help.
Tested today July 28 24 hours later after dosing 1.5ml Ammonia.
Ammonia is usually at 2.0 24 hours later after dosing 1.5ml ammonia.
Just tested Nitrate for the first time .its at 10ppm.
Sunday July 27
Just got home from working over time. Last time I tested my tank was 18 hours ago
Ammonia is at 0ppm
Nitrite at 2-5ppm maybe more like 2 ppm but definitely purple.
I'm almost sure I can find the fish on my Signature locally , if not there is a store 45min away that sells everything. My cycle is only in its second week.
Yes. I have 3 fish stores in the area. It will be a while since my nitrite is still 2-5ppm.
July 26 at around 10pm EST:
Will post results tomorrow around 4pm
I think I'm going to continue with the add and wait method I have been doing thus far.
Add ammonia, wait for it to drop to near zero then raise Ammonia levels back up to 2ppm and repeat. Keep doing...
Just tested my tank. Ammonia is now at 1ppm. I added another .5ML and a total of 1.5ML in 24. Hours as per the instructions. I will test again in 24hours. Will not redose till levels go below 1ppm....
I think it's 10% the label faded away. It's 100% pure ammonia. Zammo brand. I test the Ammonia first and it was .50. The Nitrite was 2-5ppm. Added 1ML of Ammonia and the next day the ammonia was at...
Another good thing. Not a drop of Alge in the 5 months I had it set up. I hate ipad spell correction. In the last post I wanted to say redose and it sent out reposted
Today July 25
Yesturday I repdosed .5ml of ammonia in my 20g. Today the ammonia went back up
Today I added another .5ml of Ammonia. Do I add .5 of ammonia every...
I mistyped. I dosed .5-.75ML of ammonia. Not .5-.75ppm. Will report after tomorrow's afternoon test. Thanks for the looks Yellow.
For anyone that's interested the plants are:
Well did not listen to myself. Went ahead and dosed the tank around .5-.75ppm. Will test tomorrow.
Letting me know they were dwarf made a big difference. You should be fine.

Lot of people have this problem including me. I just put the test valve up to a bright light.
The frogs will without question eat the Neon Tetras and shrimp. I would get another ram. Frogs love to play in the plants.
Today Thursday July 24
My Nitrite is at 2-5ppm
I can not tell if my Ammonia is at 0 or .25 what do you guys think? I may just wait to tomorrow and if it looks the same dose again.
The previous post was yesterday results.
Today July 23
Hopefully tomorrow my Ammonia will be at zero so I can redoes 1ml of Ammonia.
My cycle now:
Ammonia 1.0ppm. Down from 2.0
Nitrite is still between 3-5ppm
I had originally taken the Carbon out of my filter because I was dosing my plants with CO2. Should I add it back to my filter for the cycle or it does not matter?
35457ammonia is 2.0 ppm
