  1. Default NitrItes are at 5.0 plus stage in the cycle

    My ammonia is at .5 and my nitrItes have been at 5.0 plus for the past couple days.

    I have been adding ammonia daily, but i had gotten confused and added the same amount as before. the .50 ammonia is also due to the time i started the cycle initially with one pinch a day of bloodworms, so they've probably finally decomposed under the gravel.

    the tank is planted liberally with Cryptocoryne Wendii (five or six bunches transplated from my other aquariums)

    What should i do as my NitrItes are a deep purple. Should i wait til the ammonia drops to zero as stated in lady hobbs's sticky?

    Please advise.

    I would suggest following the directions listed in the cycling stickie

    The nitrite eating bacteria can take a lot longer to grow than the ammonia eating bacteria was.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    cool then i'll keep adding ammonia daily. have already added some this morning.

    I'll keep monitoring the NitrItes. I'm still glad i'm using a fishless cycle for this tank. Species specific tanks need to be done proper.
