    Thanks Slaphppy7

    I thought that might be the answer. So its a good job i haven't added any :) I had a feeling i should wait til I get 0 to re add it. The issue i have is that i'm always doubting myself though on what to do next.

    We've now hit 0.50PPM for Ammonia, it seems we have a slow and steady cycle. Well and truly looking forward to hitting 0 for Ammonia soon :)

    I feel like i may have messed my cycle up the first time i tested 0 for ammonia, i redosed at my half dose amount - all's good.

    I didn't get chance to test the day after (8th july)
    The 9th I tested 0 Ammonia - didn't add ammonia Dr Tims, I totally forgot to.

    Can't actually remember testing it on the 10th but apparently i did because i wrote down 0PPm for ammonia, so cant remember if i redosed or not.

    Didn't test last night 11th

    Tested today and i have 0 Ammonia, and 0.50 for Nitrate and 40 Nitrates.

    My question is .. has my dozy brain now ruined my cycle?!

    Nah, dose 1/2 again, and check after 24 hours.

    Should be just fine.
