i think it was like for the first week do water changes everyday then 2nd week every other and 3rd every 3rd day. or something. so i guess start doing them everyday for the next week. i had the same problem with it and got a little impatient. i think during the second week i got ammonia to 0 and then nitrites lowered the 3rd but i got impatient and added safestart once i saw that it was low enough and it was cycled. i also added more media that trick with the shower basket with the suction cups to dampen the flow GL also dont add any bacterias that arent nitrospiras because they wont do anything for the cycle and dont add the bacteria if the levels are over 1-2 ppm
