Is dosing toward the end of the cycle with lr
to 2 ppm
of ammonia sufficient?
I don't think you did any permanent harm to your tank dosing with buffer. But in the future wait until your cycle is complete to dose with any chemical...and only use it if you NEED to. Honestly, the LFS
should have known better; but a sale is a sale i suppose.
I'd dose to 4ppm and if no ammonia or trites then you're good to go.
