Cycling tank having high nitrates
Hi guys, I was going through the first week of my fishless cycle in a planted ada 60p tank, with ada amazonia, powersand, and have been testing the water levels ,
day 5 of the test i am showing around .50ppm of ammonia , .50 or .25 ppm of nitrites and 40 or 80ppm cant make out of nitrates, is this normal?
do i need to go in and remove all the decaying plant matter?
i am dosing e.i and have been using seachem stability.
