Hi, I'm new to the aquarium world and I'm (trying) to cycle a 10 gallon tank. I think I'm having trouble but then again I am new and a bit clueless
I started the tank about a week ago and I'm doing a fishless cycle with pure ammonia. I got the ammonia up to 4ppm and it's been a week and two days and no change in ammonia, if anything it went up. I did a partial water change because I thought maybe I added too much. It went down to 2 ppm
and I think it's going back up to 4! I tested for nitrites and nitrates just to be sure and they moved a tiny bit but not very much. If someone could help me through this I would greatly appreciate it! I know a little about fishless cycling but clearly not enough!
