Levels.

Ok so I just checked my levels
Ammonia: 1ppm
Nitrite: off the chart (super high)
Nitrate: between 20 and 40ppm
SG: 1.024
I added a few more small dead prawns last night. I removed them saturday because I assumed that the ammonia had peaked at .75ppm.... Yeah I know I'm stupid..... Haha but j just added some more. Any advice?

Nope, you're on your way. Now just wait and watch. And wait and watch. Oh and wait and watch. Thumbs up to you for being a patient and conscientious fish owner. Good luck with the cycle.

Thanks! At first I was soo impatient. ( like checking the levels every hour on the hour) but I'm starting to understand that these things take time.
