well today i just put half of a huge shrimp in my 30 gal
...3 hours later i tested and ammonia:0(maybe 0.1 but its hard to tell) NitrAte:0(didnt see any color) NitrIte:0(same as Nitrate) the ammonia was hard for me to tell if it was detecting anything or not...(first time testing) i have a few questions
1. how will i know when my cycle has began?
2. how often should i test?
3. do i have to test all 3 at the same time or do i just test ammonia for now? and then test the others farther into the cycle?
Im a complete newbie so be detailed with me thanks alot guys...im so excited that im finally on my way with the cycle...any advice would be great!
