    Just a few other takes on the subject.

    So i have been testimg my water every day and waiting for it the ammonia to get to absolute zero before i added any more ammonia. However from February 8th to February 11th my ammonia took a sharp drop but i have been waiting for that bright yellow before adding more however it always seems to have a little green tint to my ammonia tests. Is this considered good enough. I dont want my good bacteria to starve.

    No worries, it would take many days for an entire BB colony to completely die off, depending on the size of the colony.

    Ok its been another week i think im on week 5. I can see nitrAtes getting darker slowly but still not understanding why my ammonia is not being converted within 24hours. I last added ammonia 2 days ago and u can see it lighter but not fully converted. But my real question is right now my water evaporated do the min mark on my filter intake. Should i just add water treated with prime or do a reguar water change

    Top off with treated water.

    How much ammonia did you add 2 days ago?

    Check params again in 24 hours.

    I did 45 drops of dr tims ammonia in a 55gal tank waited about a hour and tested. The test results are the picture with the solo ammonia test. Then the next pic is the results 2 days after. It looks like the BB converted about half the ammonia so far. Ill give it another day then test again and add treated water
