Newbe Cycling 75g Question!
I am a newbe cycling a heavily planted 75g low tech tank. I was able to access some media from my sonís tank which I put into the 75 for a couple of weeks. (I then moved that media into a 10g quarantine tank to get that cycling started.) I have not used ammonia since I have purigen in the filter but I have put some fish food in here and there.
Day 14: Ammonia spiked to 1.0 and the Nitrite was between 1.0-2.0.
Day 15: Ammonia was .50 and Nitrite 2.0
Day 16: Ammonia was .25, Nitrite 2-5 and Nitrate 5.0
Day 17: Ammonia was 0! Nitrite 5.0, Nitrate 20
Day 22: Ammonia 0, Nitrite .25-.50, Nitrate 5.0
Today, Day 23: Ammonia 0, Nitrite .25, Nitrate 5.0
Is my tank nearing completion of cycling? Should I do a water change? Can anyone help me understand where my tank is at? Thanks so much!
