Ammonia goes down, no nitrites or nitrates?
I have a 50 gallon planted aquarium, currently cycling (or what I thought was cycling)-- the ammonia was 0.3 around 3 days ago, and I've been doing water changes 20% every day since then .. because through some circumstance or other, I have 3 guppies. I know I should be fishless cycling, but .. well, here I am.
I removed a bunch of melting stems/leaves last night, and today (night) the ammonia has become less than 0.1, yet there are no nitrites? :s What does this mean, and will the tank cycle this way (maybe slowly, but will it?) ?
