| || | Cycling 20 gallon tank with 8 Serpae Tetras (79 Degrees)
Im just wondering if things are going well and if my tank is overstocked or not.
Marine-Land filter with BIO-Wheel for up to 50 gallon.
I've been Cycling for almost 3 weeks this is my 3rd weed. The first week I had 4 goldfish during that first week i added 6 Serpae Tetras and got rid of the goldfish. A couple of days later I added 2 more Serpae Tetras. Now during the second week I noticed Ammonia levels staying at 0 and Nitrites staying pretty high at 2.0 ~ pmm it would get down to 1.5 ~ ppm when I would clean it for the most part it stays high. It's the 3rd week and nitrite is slowly rising Nitrate is pretty low but also rising. Does this sound right?
I feed them high quality flake food usually, Twice a day. Sometimes I throw in some Micro wafers or bloodworms instead of flake.
I do a 20-30% water change every 3 days.
