Don't do a water change until your cycle has finished as it will slow the process up when the cycle has finished then you can do a big water change ,you need to be patient now😊

What have you use to cycle your tank as it can take a number of weeks to be complete.

To start your cycle you need to throw in a couple of prawns raw or cooked it doesn't matter just leave them in,
You will then need three test kits ammonia. Nitrite. Nitrate. First you will see ammonia when that disappears you will see Nitrite and when this one disappears you will see your final one which is Nitrite and when this one goes down your cycle is complete then you can do your water change.
