That is what I thought, but I didn't want to be too quick to think the bacteria in a bottle actually works. I am still skeptical, but we will see how fast the cycle finishes. I expected longer with the little amount of LR that I have.

New results on day 6. Looks like ammonia is about 0ppm, nitrIte is 5ppm and nitrAte is 160ppm. Continue to wait it out or put new silversides in? I still have the fuzzy rotting ones in there now. What to do?

Theyre still decomposing, no need to change them. The bacteria is exchanging ammonia at the rate its being produced, which is exactly what you want! Few more days and nitite will drop most likely

Thanks again Kurty. Waiting sucks! Went to the LFS today and they have Occelaris clowns, yellow watchman goby and some of the leathers and other things that I want. It is sooooooo hard to wait!

Looks like little change today. Looks like the trItes might be down a little. Hope so. Was hoping for fish the weekend.

How much rodi water can you make in a day? Your going to have to do a couple of large pwcs to get trates down when youre done cycling, so if youre joping to be done soon which looks possible, then youre going to want to be able to knock out those pwcs
