Waiting for tank to cycle...and waiting...and waiting
I have had my tank set up for 3 months now with 2 guppies and 3 otto cats and have tested every other day for 8 weeks with an API Master test kit and still have 0 nitrite, 0 ammonia, 0 nitrate. These results have been the same the whole time, even when I did not water change for over 2 weeks to see if that could bring a change to the values. Do you think my tank has cycled or not cycled? Could something be wrong with my test kit? I am positive that I am doing the tests correct, i've checked and checked and had someone else do them instead of me.
I added some new guppies and dwarf gourami's 2 weeks ago, 2 died with 2 days, the rest died within 2 weeks, there is only 1 remaining but my original guppies and otto cats are fine - I can't work it out.
Any advice would be appreciated.
