    You need to do a big water change, maybe two big water changes back to back and get those nitrites under .25ppm.
    If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
    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.

    I read that it's normal for it to go up that high in the first few days

    You have fish in that tank and nitrites are toxic to fish. Nitrites that high can be lethal to fish. It is normal for them to rise during cycling, and it is your responsibility to keep them at tolerable levels for the fish. Tolerable is .25ppm or less.

    Whether it is normal or not, it is not safe for the fish. Was it a dry start? Or did you seed it with active bacteria?
    Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    Agreed, large water change, be sure to dechlor the fresh water you add and make sure the temperatures match

    The filters were someone else's along with the tank and they were cycled for about 6 months. That being said I added new water minus the 12" that was in it. Ill do the water change this afternoon. How much should I do?

    I would suggest two water changes. Do a 75% water change now, followed by another 75% water change about 1/2 to 1 hour after. That should get you at least close to 0.25ppm

    Test your water again about 1/2 hour after the second water change to make sure your levels are at or below 0.25ppm
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Do you have a water changing siphon?....I highly recommend investing in one, if not...makes water changes so much easier than lugging buckets

    This is the one I have: http://www.amazon.com/25-Foot-Python.../dp/B000255NXC
