Lightly planted fishless cycling question
Looking for some advice to a new guy. I have been doing a fishless cycle on a 60gal lightly planted tank with low/medium light. It took quite some time to get things going with the ammonia sitting at about 3ppm with 0 on both Nitrates and Nitrites. I dosed the tank with Dr. Tim's One and Only, and the next day I was down to 1ppm Ammonia and 2ppm Nitrites and 5ppm Nitrates. The next day I was at 0 on the ammonia, the Nitrates were at 10, but the Nitrites were at 4. Now the tank will go through the ammonia each day, and the Nitrates are holding steady at 10ppm, but the Nitrites at the top of the API chart. After a few days of this I decided today I would do a 50% water change. Even after the water change (water conditioned with Prime) the Nitrites are still at top of chart. So I actually don't know how I the Nitrites are and was wondering what my next step should be. Do I do another water change tomorrow or let things ride?
