Hi all, I had started fishless cycling in my 29 g tank on last monday......i mistakenly put more ammonia ( instead of recommended 5 ppm, it was more than 8 ppm ).... i haven't added any ammonia after that.....now it's almost a week and my ammonia reading doesn't want to come down at all....it still shows more than 8 ppm and there is no/very little trace of nitrite..... what should i do now?? any help will be greatly appreciated....btw, i couldn't get media from any established tank...does adding bio-spira help in anyways....
If you have access to another established aquarium.....take the sponge filter out of it and squeeze it into a baggie....open the baggie in your aquarium next to your pump inlet....bacteria will help. :idea:
I have a Silver Arowana named Thor He lives in a 300 gallon tank and eats from my hand...spoiled...He Loves Me,and I Him...I've raised Discus,Africans, you name it...I've pretty well had it ...freshwater.

The only time I have heard biospira help is if if it is very fresh and has been kept refrigerated. Give the tank a little more time and make sure you are using dechlorinator. Your LFS should be willing to give you a very small amount of gravel from an established tank which should also help.
