My nitrates are at 30 ppm
, I charted all the test results from the time I put the tank in and it looks like I had a second cycle. A week ago the nitrates were at 40 and nitrites at 0-0.1. That was why I thought it would be safe to add another fish (along with some bad LFS
advice). I'll give it a couple weeks and see how things play out. Do u guys think my jawfish will be okay? All I have in there is him and some cleanup crew, peppermint shrimp, hermits, 2 cleaner clams and a few various snails. He's been there since last weekend and no problems, he's digging and doing all the normal things he did at the LFS
. What nitrite level should I be worried about him? The LFS
guy told me some nitrites are okay, everything I've been reading disagrees with that.
