    ah that makes more sense, now just leave it and test daily to see how fast it drops...no water changes, no tank or filter cleaning.

    i got the instructions from a site called "The (almost) complete guide to fishless cycling" I started by adding pure ammonia i had a bubble wand and some filter media from an established tank. The water stayed at 4ppm for 2 months because it never went down I never added ammonia . it just recently started to change after I changed the heater to one with a temperature gauge and stopped adding conditioner to the water. two days ago i added ammonia and in 24 hours I had 4ppm ammonia 5ppm nitrite and 10 nitrate today it is back to all zeros....

    What is your water source, tap water?

    What water conditioner do you use? (again)?

    I think so with enough ammiona to being you up to 1 ppm. In moring retest and do again about 7 pm or so. To see change after 24 hrs. Then let us know what happened.
    Fishes go "pook pook"
    my spell check went on vaction.

    I'm going to just toss out there what Slap suggested to me when I was at all Zeros and thought I was stalled.

    I miss read the directions for how long and how hard to shake the NitrAtes bottle then shaking it even more after mixing it with the tank water. I shook that *&*(&!# thing till my arm was sore and finally got my Nitrate reading. The tank was cycled and had been for no telling how long ;-)
    just food for thought
