will it make it cycle slower?
i have a 10gallon that i have put a bunch of stem plants, hornwort and java moss in and hadit setup for a month with no reading sof ammonia nitrite or notrate. i got my rcs and put them in the tank and after one death in less then 24hrs decided to test. ammonia is reading between .1.25. i was wondering if i make a water change if it will end up effecting the cycle? as i clearly made a mistake somewhere along the line and put shrimp in my tank when it wasnt completly cycled.
