Depending on where you get your LR
from locally or delivered, there may also be some more die off and a mini cycle of sorts. Be sure you do not add any fish or other animals until after that's done unless you cure it seperately. If it's from the LFS
, chances are good you won't see anything at all.
so do u guys think that my cycle is going fast since im already off the chart on ammonia and already showing 0.2 in nitrites?
Actually the ammonia is usually the fastest part of the cycle. It can jump and subside in as little as 10 days. The longest period is typically the nitrite which can last for weeks. I would wait until the NO2
has subsided before you get ahead of yourself.
