I don't mean to hijack a thread but I've had off the charts nitrite levels for awhile. I'm 30 days in to my cycle and I've got both high nitrites and high nitrates. I've done two 50% water changes this week and my nitrite are still reading at 5+ ppm. I'm worried that if I do another WC it'll stall out what I already have going on. Thoughts?
I did a cycle using fish and a seachem bio starter they advertise as safe to use with fish from day 1. My nitrites boosted for a few days, so I did partial water changes for two days, and it finished cycling in about a month.
Check with others here before you try, but seachem , I think it is called "stability" seemed to work nicely to help the cycle along. Any one else try it?
