    If you have nitrites spiking now you can assume your nitrates are going up and up over the next week. Good work. Your cycle has been quite speedy.

    I did transfer some media from the old filter and the sponge filter was also in the old setup so I guess some bacteria did survive even though I wasn't able to find pure ammonia right away. I actually started seeing nitrates a couple days ago, but haven't tested them since...

    Remember to do that large water change to bring down your nitrates before adding fish! You want them no higher than 20ppm - great job!
    46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants
    5 gal QT

    Yup- definitely doing at least one large water change before stocking. Might be a while before I can find my multies... I will have to feed the BB with ammonia until I stock, I plan on keeping nitrates low even before I stock to try to avoid an algae explosion...

    Thanks for the help AC members!!! You guys (and gals) are great!!
