I was wondering how long it takes for the cycle to start?
I have had LR
in tank for about 1 week. I am using the dead shrimp way to create the cycle.
Readings are: pH=82, Nitrates (NO3
) =25 Ammonia (NH3
)= .25 Nitrite (NO2
These have been the same since I added the LR
. I can't seem to see any changes in the cycle. What should I do or is this normal.
Second Question: I can't get the temperature to drop in my tank. It stays around 79.7 ( is this too hot?) I don't have the heater on at all. It stays at that constant temp. Any suggestions?
