No he's having an issue with his ammonia in the tank being 0.25-1, it's because there's no nitrates the tank is not fully cycled

Today nitrates at about 5ppm and ammonia at 0.25. Haven't done a water change since Sunday so looks like it's stabilizing.

One of my old tanks when I was a teenager I had a poorly fish and worms in the substrate so I did a complete substrate change and treated the tank. Removing all the bacteria adhering to the gravel AND adding chemicals set it off on a new cycle grr but on the plus side my poorly fish got better, I was just doing loooots of water changes haha
