Started up a 15 gallon tank last week and doses ammonia (dr Tim’s) to 2ppm. I added fritz turbo start 2 days later. I checked the levels the next day and ammonia was still around 1.
Yesterday, ammonia and nitrite were both zero ppm
and nitrate was maybe .5 ppm
(hard to tell). So I dosed ammonia to 1ppm.
My readings today show a bit of everything and I’m really not sure where to go. Let it ride for a day and then dose ammonia again depending? Partial water change to reduce nitrates?
I have no plants in yet and I used Caribsea ecocomplete for my substrate.
