I've had my tank set up a month. I went through a bacterial bloom that went away, and have been feeding it with ACE Hardware ammonia every day....
My current readings are:
Ammonia (the day after it was "fed" to get it to 4 ppm
): 0 ppm
Nitrite - 2 ppm
Nitrate - 20 ppm
Seems like the cycle is underway. So my next question is ... now what?
Water change? Do another few days to make sure the ammonia goes away? Buy a few fish to start and see if they survive? Panic and run screaming?? (kidding!)
