    You know, I'm a big Petty fan & was going to put his name in parentheses after I wrote that but I was not sure anyone would get it.
    You just scored big points with me, slaphappy!! ;-)

    Ok. Well at least I now have a ballpark. 5 Weeks. And mommy1, nothing has been touched or cleaned since I started. That part is the easy part. ;-) it's the Waiting That's The Hardest Part.
  3. I have to be honest, I had no idea it would take...

    I have to be honest, I had no idea it would take more than 14 days for this first part of the cycle. I thought 5 days the most. This cycling thing is certainly not for the impatient. At this point,...

    So I checked today and it's almost yellow (0ppm), but it still has an oh so slight hint of green (.25ppm). So I am still waiting.
  5. So it looks like I may be able to add 2nd dose of...

    So it looks like I may be able to add 2nd dose of Ammonia, finnaly. It's not at 0 yet, but it's getting there. By tomorrow or Wed. I predict. But I will test and make sure before I add a drop of...

    Yea I first read that and freaked. Then retread and understood and changed my reply.;-)
    Thanks again.

    Yes, heater to 84 and large bubbler. Pumps running 24/7 .
    So I should not worry that Ammonia is not at 0 yet after 8 days?
  8. I started this 8 days ago. Shouldn't I start...

    I started this 8 days ago. Shouldn't I start seeing 0 ppm Ammonia by now? Still on 2ppm. My initial dose was approximately 3ppm. But I know I did not add too much. Just being impatient as usual. But...

    Thanks Slaphappy. I was hoping someone would get back to me and you seem to always come through. Perfect answers.

    My water in tank is evaporating. I don't want my HOB 's to stop working. Can I add primed Water? and how much Prime should I add? It lost only a gallon or 2 of water.
  11. It has been 7 days. Not much of a change in...

    It has been 7 days. Not much of a change in color. Maybe a tad lighter. Still have 2.0 ppm Ammonia. Started with 3 ppm.
    Question. I am old school and when I set up the Tank, I put Charcoal in my...
  12. Yes on all. It's been 4 days. I'll wait and be...

    Yes on all. It's been 4 days. I'll wait and be patient. Funny, I see my post titled "My Town's Water". I'll post again whe I'm back on my Mac.

    It's posted on Page 2 of this Thread , Slaphappy.

    Approximately How many days should it take for my initial dose of Ammonia to get to 0?
    It's been 4 days so far.
  14. Thanks for the answer and looking at my Water...

    Thanks for the answer and looking at my Water conditions.
    Well I guess that's good news.

    My 1st dose was Tuesday. I'm going to give it another day or 2 before I start Testing.
  15. The Ammonia and Nitrates are 0. PH is 7.6 - 7.8

    The Ammonia and Nitrates are 0.
    PH is 7.6 - 7.8
  16. Did you get my PDF from Water Company. I posted...

    Did you get my PDF from Water Company. I posted it.

    Question. After my initial dose of Ammonia, which I did on Tuesday, do I only put in the 2nd dose, after Ammonia is 0 and when I see Nitrites?...
  17. My Town Water

    I hope this Worked. Here is the .pdf

    Just to be clear. By Testing my Tap Water I would use my API Master Kit and test for Ammonia, PH ?
    I can pretty much say that all of those would be "0", since I have tested for that before. I would...

    Not really. Just was trying to make Life In A Bowl more Bearable. Figured while they are in a bad condition, try to make it better.
    I will Test my Tap and Post. Very Good Idea!! Thanks!
  20. Because I figured Distilled Water would be better...

    Because I figured Distilled Water would be better than our Tap.
    Pensacola has the worst Drinking Water in the United States.
    Would Spring Water be better?
  21. What if I change their water every other day?...

    What if I change their water every other day? Would that help! Question: Does Distilled Water from Walmart have Chlorine & Chloramines in it? Just wondering.
    But I did put Prime in there in any...

    I got the good ammonia from Ace Hardware. 10 %. No additives. Janitorial Ammonia.
    Good to know that starting out with lower Ammonia results is a faster Cycle. In my 20 Gallon, I tested between, 2 &...
  23. I take back and apologize for what I stated...

    I take back and apologize for what I stated above. The Fishless Cycle sticky does indeed address the ppm of Ammonia.
  24. Yes, but that's the one major detail the Fishless...

    Yes, but that's the one major detail the Fishless Cycle Sticky is missing. I have a 20 Gallon Tank. And after all I've been through trying to accomplish a Cycle With Fish, I cannot leave any room for...
  25. Fishless Cycle 1st initial Ammonia dose ppm?

    What should the ppm reading for Ammonia be for Initial Ammonia add?
    I read somewhere 4 ppm. Is that correct?
