Is my tank cycled?
I know all about the nitrogen cycle rest assured.
My readings are .25 ammonia 0 nitrites 5 nitrates.
I know my ammonia should be at 0 but I think it might be ammonium instead of ammonia (and my test kit doesn't test for this, of course >.>) and this reading of .25 has NOT budged.
Also, I can't tell if I ever had a nitrite spike.. Maybe it happened to quickly, or maybe since I was stupidly using test strips in the beginning, I never saw it?
Anyway I'm really not sure what to do..
