Also, on the app, which I'm on 99% of the time, I can't find the articles unless it's linked to me. Stickies are very helpful to me. It puts people like me at the disadvantage...

Oops. 8+ ppm = bad, no? Just did a 50% ish water change. If that doesn't bring it down to readable by 10:30ish, I'll do another one in the morning. (I'm PST).

It can stall a cycle if it gets too high.

Yupyup! I'm trying to bring it back down to 4ppm ish. Considering I'm at the beginning of my cycle, I'd rather not stop it before it finishes starting...

Congratulations Pigeonfood! Now that your fishless cycle is done, I hope you'll be sticking around AA and helping others have the same success you just had. Make sure you post some pics of eco the fish, lol.

Being responsible...fishless cycling defines it, fish-in requires it. Choose wisely.
