    You initially stated "Ammonia is 0, Nitrate is 0, and Nitrite is at 5.0 ppm." If this were accurate then indeed the tank would not have been cycled since nitrIte should have been at 0. Maybe you just accidentally switched the numbers though.

    Odd that it went away but then returned. I'm sorry that I can't be more helpful for the fish, I don't know what is happening.
    8 tanks running now:
    1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
    Gouramis, barbs, rasboras, plecos, corys, tetras, fancy guppies, swordtails, ottos, rainbow shark, upside-down catfish, snails, and Max and Sparkles the bettas.

    Obviously in my haste and frustration, I switched the two. Nitrite would never be .5 and the other two completely 0. I knew it would be a bunch of amateur hobbyists here, but I didn't realize everyone was mostly beginners. I very obviously made it clear the tank has been around for a long time, and there's no issue with water quality. I'm out !

    Absolutely no need to be nasty about it. You were the one who made the mistake. Since you seem to be quite the expert, I'm sure diagnosing your fish will be easy indeed.

    Everyone jumped in here to try to help with your problem. We did not come looking for you. We have very good members here that will sit for days trying to help others and your opinion of them is not only wrong, but beyond rude.

    Even tho you consider our members as "amateur hobbyists" we at least know the difference of nitrites and nitrates and we also know a tank that sits empty for weeks is no longer cycled.

    Thanks for stoppin' in.
