First tank cycling question
I've been lurking around here for a while and finally joined to make it official. I setup my first tank just under a month ago, and it's a 2 gallon (maybe) hex tank with tropica plant substrate, a 6500K CFL for light, and an in-tank filter. It's planted with eleocharis mini, ludwigia repens, and rotala bonsai.
I've been dosing liquid CO2 (API brand) since maybe a week into the cycling process, and I added root tabs around 10 days ago. The cycling process was running fine until a few days after adding the root tabs; my nitrates decreased and my nitrites haven't moved. Ammonia varies from 0 to 0.25 ppm (I'm using the API Freshwater Master Test Kit).
Does anyone know what's going on here or how I can get the cycle running again? Today is day 24 of the process. Didn't think this would take this long.
