    Question cycling problem

    0 Not allowed!
    so i have a 1.5 gallon tank
    it has a 3i tetra whisper filter
    i have been trying to cycle it for a month or so
    its readings are
    ammonia: .50 ppm
    nitrite: im not sure but it look like 0
    nitrate: 0
    i will take a pic of the nitrite reading asap
    why is it taking forever to cycle this
    im thinking of adding tetra safe start

    This is fishless?

    What are you going to stock it with?
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Maybe have a LFS test it for you. I have always found it was easier to get a good accurate reading when viewing in person rather than looking at a pic. I posted a pic of a test result once and thought the color in the pic was a little different than the colors in real life

    Also, have you cleaned the tank/filter or done anything like that ?
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
