I have tried cycling my tank for 2 weeks using the food methood and no where. So I decided to get Dr. Tims one and only but 3 days mater my ammonia is still at 1 ppm
and my nitrites are at 5 ppm
. Also my ph is at like 8 and I need it to be at 7. So i added some cholla. And some more cholla. And some more. I still have 8 ph and I now have 6 chollas in my tank. Also my snails died bc dr. Toms said to add fish right away. Im really frustrated please help me.
