i have a fishless cycling 55 gallon for about 5 weeks now...FILLED with algae, pea-soup green, reading about 30 PPM nitrates, three plants thriving in there. Feeding ammonia to about 1 PPM everyday. The ammonia is being regularly metabolized, but there's a fair amount of nitrites AND nitrates. i guess just wait for the nitrobacters to multiply to reduce the level to nil? is it possible to have all the above happening without nitrobacters?? clearly NH3 is ending up nitrate. Perhaps the nitrobacters need more time to multiply enough. Not sure. i really dont wana put fish in until nitrite falls and remains at 0 (i did a water change)
