The ammonia thing threw me for a loop when I read about it. I couldn't imagine putting that in my tank. lol
I dosed up to 4ppm today and now am reading 1 ppm
. Nitrite is up 1ppm and I've still got just the slightest tinge of orange in my trate test.
If my ammonia is down to 0 again in the morning should i keep redosing or try to get a small cuc? I'm in no rush for fish so I'm not on a speed cycle. I have the time and salt to do frequent water changes if necessary as well. I've since found even more little critters living in my tank. i think I even have a baby starfish.
So what's the consensus? Keep dosing or use cuc for my ammonia source? Would a CUC even be able to generate enough waste for the bacteria?
