ANOTHER question. i am in the process of getting my 55 gallon tank up and running and i went to the local fish store and they said that if you add the bacteria supplement and the water conditioner to a cycling tank, you should be able to add your fish to the tank in no time at all. right now it has been cycling since friday. i tested all my levels and for 2 days now they have all been consistant.
my ph is a little high but i am buying some ph down today to speed that up.
my ammonia, nitrite and nitrate are all at 0, have been for two days now.
if i were to get ph down to lower the ph level which is currently at 7.6, how long does that take to work? (trying to get 6.6 maybe 6.8)
also, if my levels remain at 0 like they should be, would it hurt to add the fish in the tank now? right now they are in a 10 gallon tank but they are a little cramped
will i expect any high spikes in my water quality? right now they are status quo
