Hi all and might I say what a great forum you have here!
I have a brand new 64 gallon tank that has been running for a week with a few live plants in it. Today I bought 6 pearl danios for the cycling process.
I am not to clued into what im supposed to be looking for next and how long the process takes?
Im aware the ammonia should go up and then it should drop off and the nitrite will go up and then that will drop off and nitrate goes up and then a 50% water change and the tank is cycled?
Im confused about how many water changes I should be doing at this stage and when I take the parameters tests what levels should I be reading to let me know to do a water change?
If someone could clarify this for me that would be a great help to me!
Thanks so much
Oh yea current params: ammonia 0-0.25ppm, nitrate 0, nitrite 0, PH 7.4
