    Ta Da!!!! Finally nitrItes dropped and we have 0/0/40+



    So my next question is this, after I do the huge WC to lower the NitrAtes how much ammonia do I continue to add daily to keep my cycle until I can get my fish ordered? With the 10 gallon it was literally a "drop or two" but not quite sure with the 135 gallon. Do I keep bringing it up to 1.0 ppm?

    Whatever you've been putting in until now is what you will continue adding until you can add fish (obviously waiting until it hits 0 before adding more) - you need a source of ammonia to feed your bacteria - you made it!

    Congratulations! It's always nice when the cycle is finally done.
    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.
    A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me
