No change in cycle + pH help
Hi guys! I have a 10g tank and started my fishless cycle on Feb. 10 (it is Feb. 21 as of this post), and nothing has changed.
I am using Dr. Timís ammonia drops, API Quick Start, and the API test kit (the one with the drops) to test everything.
My ammonia levels have been a consistent 4.0 with no changes to nitrates or nitrites. The tank is kept at 78~80F. Am I just being impatient? I feel as though 10 days is a bit too long for nothing to happen.
Also, my tap water is typically around 7.6 so I bought some cattappa leaves to lower it down a bit. A few days ago, my readings read 7.2, but then the next day it went up to 7.4... Not sure what could have caused it but I guess itís still lower than before.
