    Default Cycling ETA (Fishless)

    Admittedly I am not a patient person so I am hoping my cycling is progressing as expected.

    Here are my water parameters and if someone would be so kind to tell me I'm on the right track and give me a rough guesstimate on how much longer I can add fish I would appreciate it. I started cycling a week ago today.

    125 Gallon
    80 degrees

    Ammonia: 0
    Nitrite: 5+++
    Nitrate: 20

    I just redosed 1/2 of my original ammonia just now. I will retest tomorrow.

    So what do I have...another week? Two? Longer? I know it's not an exact science but just wanting and ETA barring that I don't jack anything up and things keep up at this progress level. Thanks in advance! :)

    It is difficult to say how much longer because every tank and cycle is different. Keep letting the ammonia drop completely to 0 before you re-dose don't clean or mess with anything in the tank, and the cycle should be done within the next two weeks.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me
