Hi all... I hate to ask another question aout cycling (i figure you pros get tired of hearing these)... But here goes:
I am 1 week into a new tank setup: 36 gallon, canister filter, 40lbs ls
, 40 lbs lr
. Tested the water after the first 2 days and again tonight - heres what i got:
Amonia 8 ppm
Nitrite 5 ppm
Nitrate 20 ppm
Is this normal? I thought i should have seen more seperation between the spikes? Remember - its only been 1 week.
See my pics...
Thanks for all the great advice..
