I'm new to the aquarium-hobby and I recently bought my first aquarium. I'm currently trying to cycle it, but have a problem with the ammonia-levels.
If I understand correctly, as a first step the ammonia level should be increased to about 5 ppm
. I'm using a pure 25% ammonia solution, and the JBL testkit.
I have been experimenting, but no matter how much ammonia I add, I can't get the level higher then around 0.2 - 0.4 ppm
Does anybody have I clue what I might be doing wrong?
