    Default 55 gallon fishless cycle showing Nitrates and Nitrites?

    Ive been doing the fishless cycle for awhile now and my tank is showing 10ppm Nitrates and 2.0ppm Nitrites. Is this right? Can nitrites and nitrates both show up? I thought once you had nitrates the nitrite was being filtered out? Im just wondering how close I am. It has been quite a while.

    Have the nitrites registered any higher than that yet?
    When was the last time you added ammonia? How long did it take to get to 0?

    Im pretty sure the nitrites were higher before. I added ammonia about a day ago but a very small amount (a few algae wafers).

    I have a question as well because I'm in the same scenario and i'm unsure as to if I should still be putting ammonia in my tank.

    My params are:

    Amm: .50 ppm
    Ites: 5 ppm
    Ates: 20 ppm
    55 Gl: 15 African Cichlids, 2 Synodontis -
    Filters - Aquaclear 110 and PennPlax 700

    You are showing nitrites because your tank has not yet finished with the cycling process. And yes, it is common to have both nits and nats. When the nits drop to 0, you have a finished cycle.
