About two weeks ago I bought 2 new AC
filters for our 10 gal
fry tanks. They would not fit on the lip of any of the other tanks so I decided to try my hand at a fishless cycle using pure ammonia. I figure it's the perfect time to experiment with it and gain first hand experience. I have not been dosing daily because the first shot of ammonia lasted for over 2 days.
July 7th I started the cycle by adding 1.5 ml of pure ammonia.
July 9th I tested the water and had 4 ppm
of ammonia. I also dosed another 1.5 ml of pure ammonia.
July 12th I tested the water and had .5 ppm
of ammonia. I also tested Nitrite and have a reading of 2.0. I dosed another 1.5 ml of pure ammonia
Can this be right? I am already going into the Nitrite stage? It's only been 5 days.
