20 gal planted tank, been running since August 5th
ph stays around 7.0 to 7.6
Ammonia 2.0ppm - 4.0ppm
last week Nitrite rose to .25 then dropped down to 0 after 2 days, ammonia stayed the same.
Today, ph dropped below 6.0 with ammonia staying at 4.0 ppm
did a 50% water change this morning and added Quick Start (from what I’ve read so far that’s been the best corse of action)
Ph is at normal levels again.
I’m feeling frazzled that my cycle never started, or stalled.
I’m thinking of removing some plants as I became too overzealous too quickly with plants. Feels as if some of the seeds I started/planted may be the culprit, but I’m also so lost.
