    I've been cycling my aquarium for 3 weeks now with the use of bacteria from an established tank as well daily dosages of ammonia. My tank can now fully break down 2ppm of ammonia, with a small reading of about 0.25ppm of nitrite in 24 hours, with the nitrite breaking down to 0ppm within the next...
