Well, you still have ammonia, so you haven't finished that phase. I would have thought that you would see nitrite since ammonia no longer climbs. A little puzzling, but I would just wait it out. Sure, we could consider test kit error, operator error (i know, you have been careful), bad test kit too. I suppose you could have the water tested by another kit, your LFS
might do this for you.
Glad your fish are doing well. It sure takes a lot of work (PWC
) when you have too many fish in an uncycled tank, and you seem to have kept up with it. You could also test your tap water to make sure you don't have a positive ammonia result with tap water. Municiple tap water supplies can add chloramine to the water, which tests positive on the ammonia test.
