I used prime in the water and let it run in the tank for 2 days before i added 2 zebra danios. After 3 days i was still showing 0 ammonia. I decided to add more fish because i thought maybe they didnt produce enough bioload. Now the reading for ammonia is a bit under .25 ppm
. Still showing 0 nitrite and nitrate at the moment. ! have had the fish in for 9 days. I was reading articles about how to grow bacteria faster and from what i read the bacteria that uses ammonia reproduces fastest around 7.8-8.0 ph which is where my water is at. I also have my airstone on very high to keep the oxygen high, again because what i read about the bacteria is they thrive in o2
saturation of 80%+. But still no sign of nitrites which tells me there is no bacteria.
