Tell me it isnít restarting!!!
I am a newbie, I got a new tank December 23, and added 5 guppies from pets smart. Unfortunately all my guppies died and I have learned a lot, I mean ALOT about cycling. I chose to continue with a fishless cycle. My tank was nearing the end of the cycling process no ammonia, nitrites decreasing... it was beautiful! But then this!!!!!!
My ammonia is slowly creeping up, my nitrites are 0 and my nitrates are 0.
What the actual!!!! I keep a fish log (sorry nerd alert) so if you can please look at my data and let me know what you think Iíve done wrong. I have a 20 gallon tank (top fin), no fish. I add a pinch of flakes everyday, and vacuumed 10-30% every week because it was looking gross!
It was my plan to get fish tomorrow.... is there any chance this is just a blip?
