Water Levels Continued

Hi Everyone,

I posted earlier on how my water levels were high and asked for advice. Well, I did the water change... or should I say that I have been doing some water changes and still... my water levels seem to be high.


pH about 7.6
Ammonia about .50ppm
Nitrite 1.0ppm
Nitrate 10ppm

After 4-5 water changes (20% each):

pH about 7.4-7.5 (this is my tap water's pH)
Ammonia 0.25
Nitrite 1.0
Nitrate between 5.0-10.0ppm

By changing my water frequently... like I have been doing all day... will this affect my fish? Should I leave it for a couple of hours and return to my water change to lower my levels? Any help would be appreciated.

It's posted in the freshwater section, so I assume it's freshwater.

Since you're doing a fish cycle, keep doing the small water changes for the sake of the fish. The lower you can keep the levels throughout the cycle, the better chance they will have of surviving.
