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.

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.

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.;-)

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?
09-10-2014, 06:12 PM
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.
09-07-2014, 08:34 PM
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...

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.
09-04-2014, 10:48 PM
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.
09-04-2014, 10:15 PM
The Ammonia and Nitrates are 0.
PH is 7.6 - 7.8
09-04-2014, 10:11 PM
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?...
09-04-2014, 07:21 PM
I hope this Worked. Here is the .pdf
09-04-2014, 07:09 PM
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!
09-03-2014, 09:24 PM
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?
09-03-2014, 01:53 AM
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 &...

I take back and apologize for what I stated above. The Fishless Cycle sticky does indeed address the ppm of Ammonia.
09-02-2014, 09:20 PM
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...

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