I have been testing my tank for about a month now and my cycling seems to be going really slow. The ammonia is still high, while the nitrites are rising. I have barely any nitrates. I, however, have noticed that the algae that is growing in my tanks is a brownish color. One of the guys at my lfs
told me that when the algae turns a brown color that is an indication that my cycle is almost complete. I would like to get some of the clean up crew in there to get rid of the nasty looking algae but I dont want to put my other fish in danger if the cycle is not done yet. Can someone please help me.
