I can't remember if I keep adding an ammonia source until fully cycled or not. (It's fishless)
Ok I’m having a brain fart! Cycling my tank and my ammonia has gone from 4ppm to 0.25, nitrites are around 2 and nitrates about 10. I can’t remember if I keep adding an ammonia source until fully cycled or not. (It’s fishless)
You may want to consider adding only 2 ppm of ammonia and see what nitrite does…whatever you do, avoid letting ammonia level to exceed 4.0 ppm … level above 5 ppm can poison the nitrite-oxidizer bacteria and prolong the cycling process.
