The 5 gallon Hex tank light

To those who have this tank - have you had trouble with the light? My light stopped working after I didn't use it for a week or so (kept it off to try to combat some algae). It was one of those...

Update: Three 25% PWCs later, I am still seeing nitrItes in the neighborhood of 2-5 when I test daily.

No ammonia though, which tells me that even with the 23 fish I have stocked, the fishless...

Nitrates tested as negligable today - .25 or less. I didn't let the tank be without water for more than it took the python to suck it down and refill it right away. I replenished the dechlorinator...

Nothing unusual - we did go out of town for 3 days this past weekend (I posted in another thread about this) - I dosed 4-6ppm ammonia before we left and when we got back Sunday night, all traces of...

Yes! I followed your guide to the letter, keeping the ammonia dosed appropriately each day, and it was going to 0 by the time % tested the next day. The tap water doesn't register any ammonia in it...

Just tested the water and saw nitrItes?! Why would this even be happening if the tank tested free of nitrItes every day for the last 2 weeks of the fishless cycle? Should I wait until tomorrow and...
