Whats up with my tank mini cycle?
Ok guys here's something that's striking me as random since the only thing I have changed is the amount of CO2 Booster I have been putting in...
For the longest time It has been sitting at the following stats
- PH: 7.5
- Ammonia: 0
- Nitrite: 0
- Nitrate 20 ppm
Tonight I was doing my weekly tank maintainence and got some odd fluctuations
- PH: 7.7
- Ammonia: .25ppm
- Nitrite: .25 ppm
- Nitrate: 0 ppm
The only thing that I have changed is adding API CO2 booster 2x a week and using Leaf Zone a bit more frequently
Tank has been running now for four years consistantly
There have been 0 added fish and 0 lost fish 0 new plants 0 new other items
Tap water registers 7.5 and 0 ppm across the board.
Should I be worried or is this a sign that my plants are taking to the added CO2, leaf zone and pro-grow I've been adding?
