i have had fish in my tank for about a week now and i have put in a serving of turbostart the last 2 days but my ammonia and nitrite reading are still 0 so i was wondering why my tank hasnt begun to cycle yet?

How big is the tank, how many fish and how big are the fish? If the fish are pretty small in a large tank, they will not affect the tank's cycle right away.

with 3 babies in a 30 gallon, they aren't producing much ammonia. and since there's not a lot of debris, the bacteria that eat debris aren't producing much ammonia either. I'd say keep an eye on it and be happy that you're not overstocked and battling ammonia! :)

So could you post all your water test readings?

well i must say i am an idiot! i have been using turboostart for 1 week and am seeing good results but i just realized today i was using about 1/8 the recommended dosage so i should see some extreme results now that i know what i was doing wrong but now i expect my cycle to be done within the week.
