So I haven't posted lately so I figured i owed an update! lol I put my shrimp in my tank to get my cycle going on 4/06. On 4/13 i went to look for it to pull it out and it was gone. Had some family issues arise so I had to back away from the tank for a few days. Tonight I still can't locate the shrimp and my water tests came out as:
Ammonia - .25ppm
Nitrite - .25ppm
Nitrate - 5ppm
Seems to me either my tank fully cycled in a week and four days, which doesn't seem possible, or something is seriously wrong....
Any ideas on what i should do from here?
