can I kill my bacteria

I was just wondering. I'm cycling my tank right now and am in the phase of high NO2. Can the NO2 be so high that even the bacteria are killed off? My levels are so high that it's off the scale of my test kit.

Yes, they can, but it will eventually catch up, just be patient.

Also, in connection with that. Does it take longer to cycle a bigger tank?

That article deals with how a DSB works...as it goes through it, it explains the life cycle of the bacteria. Its pretty easy to read...
