Nice, now just leave it be for awhile. I would test ever morning when I was cycling. If the ammonia goes down to 0 make sure you add ammonia back in to make it 4ppm.

One day in the future youll wake up and both ammonia and nitrites will be 0 with out doing anything! It's so cool.

Let us know if you need anything else.

The forum is here to help.

Just when the levels drop. you wanna keep them between 2ppm and 4ppm ideally. Thats why i test in the am cause you can does up the ammonia if needed and it gives it a whole day to eat it!
