Yesterday I got .50 ammonia, 0 nitrite, 8.0 ph
Today I got 2.0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, 8.2 ph, and between 0 and 5.0 nitrate
My tank has been cycling for almost three weeks. I used terra safestart but I don't think it worked.
Here are my questions. Can I get nitrate before nitrite? Why did my ph change? Why is my ammonia climbing so fast?
More helpful info....I do 10-20% water changes daily. I have six young fish. 20 gal
tank with a 20 gal
filter. No live plants.
