Added what should of been 2 ppm of ammonia chloride solution to my tank. Problem is a day later I am not reading any ammonia, no nitrite, and no nitrate. This using salifert test kits. Going out to buy another brand just to be sure.
Keep dosing the ammonia though - you'll need to keep doing this until your cycle is complete and you have fish (another ammonia source). The good bacteria you are building by doing the cycle needs a constant source of ammonia or it dies off and you start cycling again!
When you see 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite and you start seeing nitrates, your cycle is done and is ready for fish!
