i wouldn't even bother testing pH during the cycle. It doesn't really matter if you don't have fish in.Da name's Paul. Not Dave. ROFL
Learn to give and take. That's how things should always work.

Agree. pH jumps all over the place during a cycle so save yourself the trouble. I take it you are cycling with fish since the ammonia levels are in the yellow?

Also agree. Don't worry about the pH. If you're fishless cycling, you can dose the tank with ammonia, until you get around the 4.0 mark - the dark green colour.Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark
