Alright so I'm cycling my new 28 gallon tank, it's bee going since november 15th. I just tested the water and my readings are as follows, Nitrite 1.0ppm, Nitrate 10 ppm, and ammonia 0-0.25? It's more yellowish then green but not a pure yellow colour. I'm pretty sure I did the right amount of drops and what not. I just find it hard to believe that a couple days ago it was like 2.0ppm and I haven't changed the water or anything. That bring me to my next question, Now the I have nitrates (Yayyyyy) and I'm on my way to a cycled tank do I have to start performing little water changes to dilute any ammonia or nitrites? Or will they disappear on their own? I'm thinking they won't but yeah Better to get expert advice rather then wing it and hope something happens lol. Thanks!
