Cycling New Tank
Hi guys; finding so much conflicting information so was wondering if someone could give me some advice...
I have a 57litre (15 gallons) aquarium that has been running for 1 week; I’ve added seachem stability to the aquarium on a daily basis; and added 1 dose of dr tims ammonium chloride - my ammonia has registered at 2ppm and then 4ppm over 36 hours; I have a very small reading if nitrite; and no nitrate.
I dosed seachem nitrogen but the nitrates are still registering at zero...so I’m unsure if it’s all being used overnight or whether the test isn’t accurate.
My questions are do I just wait now for ammonia to drop and nitrite to rise? Or should I add more ammonium chloride once the ammonia begins to drops, or wait for ammonia to be at zero before adding more ammonium chloride?
Also should I be dosing seachem nitrogen for the plants as the nitrates are at pretty much zero?
