    Pardon my lack of knowledge on big English words, but does "degrade" mean that the peroxide will disappear in the water and I do not need to do a water change right away?

    Someone mentioned that it is okay to use 5ml of 3% peroxide instead of 10ml. Can I do the same for 3.5%, or maybe 4ml Just to be safe?

    If the filter came with the tank, it may already have cycled media in it, from previous usage. That would explain why your parameters have stayed consistently good. If it's a new filter with new media, I suggest you obtain some cycled media from your LFS and put it in there. That would help speed up the cycling.

    Okay, I am back with the parameters prior to the water change. As you know I haven't cycled the tank beforehand, but my results came back as this??? Don't the parameters usually appear wonky if the tank is not cycled and a water change has not been done?
