More questions on cycling, filters, etc.
I hope I am coming close to my 5 gallon Marineland (filtered, heated) being cycled. I'm doing the fishless cycling and when I add my ammonia, (about 4ppm) it takes it maybe 24 or so hours to reach zero. My Nitirites take about that long too. The only thing is, my nitrates are way up there (maybe 40ppm) and are staying at about that level. Any ideas what this can mean? It's been cycling about 5 weeks now.
Also, I've also noticed my Bio-Wheel has stopped turning. (It's the smallest one meant for a tank less than 10 gallons I think). Any advice what I should do??
