Thanks Tank Girl. I looked for Dr. Tim's in several shops to no avail. I know Amazon has a great price on it and was waiting to complete an order when made the mistake of finding another product that someone (probably a spammer) recommended online. It did no good at all that I can tell.
By the way, we are using the API Master Kit and we ordered the separate kH
kit recently too.
Tap water and tank water's parameters are the same so far.
The good news is that after I posted the original message this morning over coffee, I tested the water before my WC
and I had .25 ppm
Nitrites!! The Ammonia was 2.0 but dosed with Prime. I did a 50% WC
and added Prime and Stability.
First time it has budged off blue so far.
The only think different is a day has passed and I bumped by tank temp up from 75 to 79 yesterday evening.
I'm embarrassed to say that the tank has 6 Green Cory's, 7 Black Phantom Tetras and a Clown Pleco.
I know that sounds like it could be a train wreck but I am able to closely monitor the fish and the numbers right now.
We are going out of town in about a month so I need it to be cycled by then though!
