I am doing the fishless, adding ammonia cycling and after 5 weeks my readings are:
Ammonia - 0
Nitites - 0
Nitrates - 10 PPM
It's a 5 gallon, heated and filtered.
And I have some algae growth on the front of the tank and my plants aren't looking so healthy. Anyhoo, my questions are:
What do I do now?(as far as adding more ammonia)
Should I remove the the dead leaves on my plants - or are they useful for a source of ammonia?
Any tips would be appreciated as this is the first time I have ever cycled a tank!
