I noticed that nobody has responded yet. I'm so far from an expert - I'm in the middle (or at the end?) of my first fishless cycle too! How's it going? What sort of values are you at? Wanna see mine??
I knew you would
Basically, I spend the first bit adding ammonia for about a week and a half. I got some goo from an already cycled tank. Eventually my ammonia went down to zero, and my nitrates went up. I've done a PWC
to get my nitrate levels lower, and I'll be adding fish tomorrow I hope!
So, how's your cycling going?
