tank cycled super fast?!?!?!

it would appear my tank is cycling very fast- so fast I never got a high reading of ammonia. only had fish in it for a week, ammonia never got any higher than 1ppm. now it appears my nitrite has begun to elevate, but still, not too bad. has anyone ever heard of a tank cycling so fast? it is a 30 gallon planted tank with 4 zebra danios in it.

The lower the bioload, the faster the cycling. My south american cichlid tank never registered ammonia and my nitrites never got above .25ppm.

That is called responsible cycling. I used BioSpira, but my tanks cycled fully within 2 weeks.

I say keep up the good work! :)


Pardon the pun, but I'm hooked!
