Where's the amonia spike?
Been lurking for a couple of months learning a lot about freshwater nano tanks since I decided to buy the 6 gal fluval edge.
One of the things I've read about is the amonia spike that is expected during the first cycle. I'm on my 5th week and still no spike. I decided to cycle it with fish so I got 3 glo danio to help cycle. After 3 weeks, I purchased a small algae eater and after 4 weeks, I thres 3 ghost shrimp in also. I have three live plants, Japanese moss ball.
I've been doing 2 gal water changes each weekend and testing the water just prior. All tests have been in the normal range after 5 weeks. My amonia reading for the last 2 weeks has been a steady .25
Fish seem healthy & happy.
So, should I expect the amonia to spike? Am I changing water too often? Your thoughts?
