One more thing, you have a small tank so make sure you're not overdosing anything. The smaller the water, the easier to make huge mistakes.

1st of all thank you for replying (yay!!)

Sorry I meant 90litre. Doh!!! Don't know why I put 20!! Lol. Ok Thank you. I will just leave it now then. It's fish less cycle I'm doing. Do I need to add fish food? I have heard/seen different things on the Internet people saying add food don't add it so I'm quite confused.

It's more of preference I believe. I use pure ammonia that I got from a local store. I like the put ammonia because I can measure how much exactly is going in but you can do any of the methods.

Your tank is still considered small. Don't quote me on this but I think it's considered small up until you reach around 40+ gallons so still be cautious!

Not a problem! I'm fairly new too. I've gotten most of my information from this website and the users. It's a great community! If you need help, just ask. Take advantage of the Internet but a lot comes from experience! Have patience! That's one thing this hobby is teaching me!

Ok. Just tested my water again.

No3 100
No2 1-5
Gh 16
Kh 10
Ph 7.2-7.6
Cl2 ok

Should it be going up whilst in cycling process? Then will come back down? I feel like its getting worse. But I'm not sure if it gets worse before it gets better. Or whether I'm doing something really wrong.
