Well i had no idea about cycling a tank at first, we got the tank and fish same day, and i only learned later that night about cycling a tank so it was too late by then, I do more research now so hoping to avoid future pitfalls.
We have had the tank running now for 6weeks ish, so I assume it is cycled now, I do 30% PWC
every two to three days with a full tank cleaning every 3 weeks, could this account for the 0 readings, also there are only 2 fish in the tank. I had an ammonia spike back at the start then it decreased to 0, the NO3
have always read 0 though.I use the Aquafin mini master test kit, maybe i am doing the tests wrong?or got bad regent?
PS. I find the instructions with this test kit irritatingly lacking, but then again I could just be slow heh.
Also the scale for nitrates starts at 5mg/L, could it be that there is small amounts just not enough for the test to really show?
