Whatsup everybody. I have a new 5 gal planted tank with a young betta. I started the tank, waited 48 hours with conditioner, added tetra safestart, and added my betta (I wanted to wait until it was fully cycled, but I found the exact betta I had been looking for and couldnt resist) anyways, it has been about 24 hours since my betta has been in his tank and I just took more water readings. Ammonia is around .5ppm which I am okay with, Nitrites 0ppm, but the nitrates are around 20-40 ppm. from my understand I dont want to do a water change for 14 days, but I worry about those nitrate levels already being almost 40... What do you guys recommend?
I tested my tap water and it is 0 ppm Nitrates
