I've read many things and everything seems to have a different answer! I'm cycling my 10gl QT (I bought my DT when it had been up & running for 8-9 months so haven't been through a cycle!) I'm wondering what the levels should get up to for it to be considered a "good" cycle.
Last week ammonia reached 4.0 (at its highest I've seen) now it's down to 2.0
Last week nitrites stayed at .25 (lady weekend crept to .50) today they finally climbed to 2.0
Last week nitrates stayed at 0 today they are somewhere between 10-20 (sorry I can't find myself to say 10 or 20 because the color is in between somewhere
Is this a big enough cycle?
