I've Got Nitrites!

Recommended Posts

The "cycle" is still there in the tank. My water params today are:

Ammonia: Between 0 and .25; closer to 0

Nitrite: Between 0 and .25

Nitrate: 5.0

Ph: a STRONG 7.6

KH: Still at 89.5, has not gotten any higher in the last few days.

I am not doing a wc today, but I did add a double-dose of Prime to the tank. I also wanted to ask this:

I am still feeding my fish twice a day as I normally do. Should I only feed once a day until the cycle completes? What do you all think?

Ph: a STRONG 7.6

Are you using the HIGH PH tester now? That's the only one I use, cuz I keep my PH above 7.6.

No, I guess I need to do that as I really think it is higher than 7.6. I will do that now.

Thanks Hon! I have to tell ya, I thought that I was just gonna be one of those freaks of nature that could never get a tank to cycle no matter what I did!!! I mean, it has been set up since Oct. and I have been doing almost daily wcs since then! I just wish I had gotten the coral and my KH problem corrected sooner, but hey, you live and learn!!! :rolleyes:

Pretty soon you're going to be complaining of high nitrites, and wondering why they won't go away. :rofl3

Am I qualified to say that? ;)

Well, seeing as how we both are so inexperienced, I really don't know what is going to happen with my cycle next!!! :blink: Maybe the fish will start talking to me and they will tell me what to expect! Yeah!!! :rofl After all, they are prolly experts. I certainly am not! :exactly
