hi there.wow it looks great!!!
just an update on my tank
well heres my progress so far
22/07 ammonia = the start of the cycle.i added 4ppm of ammonia.
24/07 ammonia = 4ppm - nitrite = 0ppm - nitrate = 0ppm
27/07 ammonia = 3ppm - nitrite = 0.25.ppm - nitrate = 5.0ppm
29/07 ammonia = 2ppm - nitrite = 2ppm - nitrate = 10ppm
30/07 ammonia = 0.25ppm - nitrite = 2.0ppm - nitrate = 10ppm
i then put in enough ammonia to bring it back up to 4ppm
31/07 ammonia = 0 - nitrite 2.0ppm - i didnt test nitrate
i then added ammonia to bring it up to 4ppm
1/08 ammoina = 0 - nitrite = 5.0ppm - nitrate = 20ppm
i have just added more ammonia to bring it up to 4ppm.
using the add & wait method i will keep doing this untill both the ammonia & nitrite are going to 0ppm from 4ppm within 12 hrs.then it will be cycled
