Ok 1. i edited that out 2 seconds after i posted ( i.e. before you replied so i dont know why u see .25) because i typed my old nitrite readings. it is at ZERO. 2. And i repeat I DON NOT USE SHRIMP I DOSE WITH PURE AMMONIA thus i add ammonia it drops to zero within 24 hours and i dose back up so the bacteria does not die. all i am asking is if a LARGE PWC
will lower my nitrate to an appropriate level because over my studies i came across that very idea. Waiting as not been an issue i started my fishless cycle over a month ago. if i was impatient i would have simple bought a damsel and threw it in. for some reason everyone just flamed my thread . i was asking a simple question. i will make sure not to post here any longer.
