    Did I mention on how much you know saves me so much time?? xD So the nitrite and nitrate won't stall the cycle, nice! Closer to getting that new fish. I guess the filter will do everything now; I just need to wait to add more ammonia. I guess I'll buy some plants or something! And maybe more shrimp. They'll love feeding on the filter. x)

    Where do you learn all this? :o Knowledge is certainly power.

    Nope, it's just if Ammonia get's too high. You'll see them spike up really, really high and then eventually start to come down and nitrates will appear and then soon your cycle will be done. It's only high ammonia that will stall the cycle. And actually Fishless methods can sometimes be 2 weeks and they are done, you don't need the full month with them.

    Won't the high nitrite stall the cycle? And the ammonia is fine, it's at 1ppm-2ppm. I'll wait until it goes around .50ppm or so; I don't want the nitrites even higher. Since this is day 2 of the nitrites, I think the nitrates will start to show up early-mid next week or so.

    No that's good! You just have to keep monitoring your ammonia, you can test for your nitrites/nitrates but ammonia will tell you when you need a water change/dose more ammonia.

    Okay, good. (: Also, the nitrites burst up high today! It's now 3ppm-5ppm. The test kit chart's look exactly the same with the nitrites. How am I supposed to tell? The BB will probably start to die off soon. :/

    It should have a rubber/plastic grip case over the metal so no, the metal won't actually touch the water unless you rig it up weird or something. My water stays down about an inch in Remmy's tank so the thing barely even touches the water anyway.

    I know! :D And... I'm breaking a promise here... When I 'clamp' the clamp light on the tank, isn't the metal part that hangs it up going to touch the water? (sorry, I still have many questions along the way!!)
