Nitrite?

Hey!

Still cycling my tank. It has been at a solid 1.0ppm for about a week now. How much longer until the Nitrate kicks in? Until the Nitrite disappears??

Well, I don't know about your particular tank but I've seen it happen quite often that the amount of time it takes for the bacteria to kick in and change the nitrite to nitrate is about the same amount of time it took them to start changing ammonia to nitrite. How long did that step of the process take you in this tank? Are you doing a fishless cycle, or do you have fish in the tank already?
