Confused by Ammonia, Nitrite and Nitrate all being present with the majority being Nitrate.
You can see that the nitrates are there now. So are you saying nitrates show up during that cycle and not at the end. Or there will be a LOT more of them at the end, over 20 PPM
As per what I have been doing. Did a 20 percent water change 2 days ago when when reaching 20ppm on nitrates.
Feeding a small pinch of marine flake food three times a day to the 3 mollies and 1 chromis.
I have an LED
light on the tank. Currently running a HOB
filter and Canister filter.
Live sand, and DIY live rock. Water is Primed tap water. Salinity is 1.023 as per refractometer.
Just tested nitrate of tap water vs nitrate of tank water. Tap is left, tank is right. Obviously I have nitrates in tank. Hmmm.
