Thread: Cycling

  1. Default Cycling

    I think my tank is still cycling, my ammonia reads 0 but my nitrite is way high in the danger zone. Even with 50% water changes the nitrite levels do not fall. Is this normal?

    nop, they should go down if you do a water change.
    make sure you use something like aqua safe, unless you have well water.
    and what test do you have?
    i recommend the API master kit, the strips arnt good.
    Cuz a 50% should make them go down

    Can you give us a few more detials about your tank?

    How big, do you have any fish in there, what your ammonia and nitrate levels at, How have you been cycling the tank ?

    We might be able to help some more with some more info
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Nitrites always climb way up before dropping. If you are cycling with fish, you need to do a water change to bring it down. If you are fishless cycling, leave the tank alone. It's trying to grow bacteria.
