Cycling with plants
I’m very close to my cycle being done.
At the moment my ammonia hovers around .5ppm, and the nitrites at 5ppm, which I’m hoping will drop any day now.
I have been doing water tests daily, and have noticed the nitrates building up also
Here is my question:
Should I worry about high nitrates during a fishless cycle? I have some plants, which I hopped would take care of that, but so far hasn’t been the case.
Also, my plants don’t look the greatest. I have some Flurish, but I’m scared to add it, because I don’t want it to mess with my water testing.
Any one have any ideas?
