Don't get too excited ladies... nitrites have risen overnight.

Test results below are 12 hours after dosing ammonia to 0.5ppm.

Will test again after work later and report in.

Okay let it eat the ammonia then test again then redose again with ammonia :)

OK, I'll be home in a couple of hours or so, I'll test again then.

Do you want ammonia back up to 0.5 again?

Do I need to do a WC?

You did good. I would test after 24 hours.

Okay so lets do it again no WC :) 

Shall I just keep re-dosing to 0.5 each night (assuming zeros for ammonia & nitrite that is) and report in?

What am I waiting to see/happen? Is it a case of redosing for a week to ensure ammonia & nitrite disappear consistently?

yes but I want to do a 1.0 ammonia before we say its cycled. Cause a cycled tank should be able to consume 1.0 of ammonia in 24 hours :) So we are so close :)

Ah ok, I thought that might be the way we were heading.

Should I continue to dose at 0.5 for now though?

Yup Yup and when it takes it all in 24 hours we will push the 1.0 :thumbs: 

Sounding good ?

We are at the .5 mark. :) 

Not sure I'm understanding properly. Do you mean you're reading my ammonia test result as 0.5ppm after 24hrs or that at the minute we should continue to dose to 0.5?

Only checking as, I know the image shows ammonia slightly green (but in reality, I read it as far more yellow and 0.0), but I wouldn't have said it was up at 0.5. Just want to check we're on the same page.
