Possible disaster about to occur. Nitrite tests aren't going powder blue even after 10-20 minutes. Can plants suck all the Nitrate out that would cause this rise in Nitrites?

Doing immediate PWC....

.25ish Nitrite rise since adding the fish. No lost fish yet. Not really happy since I considered myself to have been over cautious. I can't do anything tonight, but if I get the same result tomorrow...

Yay, I can blame you for making it a 30+ day cycle. Which just felt longer than it really was. Probably because of the woman continuing to ask why I heat, filter & constantly test 'plain' water for...

I would bet on it being that leaking tannins. You can try taking it out and boiling it to see if it stops.

I understand and appreciate the advise. It is level and plumb on every side/face except the rear left front high to low in the back. It's small and if it ever leaked I'd take action. Leaking on...

Still can't get it done. Ammonia still turns over in less than 24 hours. But Nitrites will not drop. Added some crushed flake the other day to see if that helps. Nitrates are plummeting too, not...

Some odd readings this morning put the fish on hold. While Ammonia is still turning over in less than 24 hours, Nitrites spiked, dropped and now have spiked again (or so the test shows). Since I'm in...

Oh, and a 'well this is common sense, but I was too dumb to think before acting'. If you buy Eco-Complete this time of year, and it arrives frozen, don't just throw it in a 80 degree tank. The sounds...

Think I made it. Ammonia is being turned over in 24 hours. Nitrites 0 and Nitrates around 40. Another test tonight will confirm hopefully. Probably a PWC tomorrow to get the Nitrates down slightly...

Woo-hoo, looks like I'm on the way. Figured it would take longer. Started by dosing amonia on 11/30, probably dosed too much as it stayed in the 8+ range. Today, 12/9, Ammonia still high, but...

Thanks! This time around should be much better since the tank will be in MY house and cared for daily. Wouldn't be suprised if CO2 enters the picture quickly.

Still figuring where the plants will...
