I set my current dkh to 0 and my target to one and used baking soda as my product.

We also have to take in to account that nitrosomonas are accountable for the production of nitric acid. In not sure just how much yet.

Do you people ever sleep;p hey Jen the issue with the off the charts nitrites... Another member in here just fishless cycled his 75g, seemed to take months. He hit a point, couple weeks, where he was getting consistently high high (4-5ppm) readings of trites, no amm, and maybe 5 trates?? Even after like a 75% wc and no re-dose it would come right back to those levels.. Just thought I'd share. May be pertinent? Prob not though.. You guys lose me fast with these threads:/

Right, my hypothesis is that it was "something else" that stalled it and not the high nitrites specifically. It's not that I don't believe in stalls, I just don't believe that they are caused BY the high nitrites or ammonia.
I mean whenever people say "high nitrites stall your cycle!" why do they say or think that? I know that they don't know, that is just the info that gets passed around and around and around. I think it's a problem of correlation without causation. Cycle stalls, people blame high nitrites or ammonia, but is there PROOF of this or is it just what everyone "knows" and perpetuates?

That site seemed to be down when I checked
Tank has about 76 liters, can you check amount for me if it works when you look to increase 1dkh?
