Thks Librarygirl! This is the 1st day the NitrItes have been that high. I'm hoping since the first part of my cycle, the ammonia reaching zero the 1st time (w/ no seeded media), maybe this part of the cycle won't be so long! Ha ha... I'm always hearing this part takes 2x as long but I also feel like the only person w/out seeded media!! I'm being patient but I also didn't want to miss something like a PWC
, etc & waste a week, KWIM?
Sooooo... I just wait & when NitrAtes finally get super high do a PWC
? Or do a PWC
to bring NitrItes down just so they're readable? And obviously, do PWC
if the pH crashes--I wanna catch it befored that though. I guess I do best knowing what to approximately expect but I understand it won't be text book.
