Cycling planted tank
About 10 days into cycling my planted aquarium. Used plants from previous tank and ones bought from store, a little bit of substrate from my other tank, and have not been dosing ammonia. Just wondering how I’m looking so far and what actions to take from here. My readings have pretty much been the same the past three days with ammonia at .50 ppm, nitrite at 0 ppm, and nitrate at about 40 ppm or above except on Monday it was at roughly 5.0 ppm? Any help or comments would help. Thanks!
