    It doesn't make sense in pure logic tho, since a smaller amount is small.. Whatever. lol

    And it is made out of waste. xD

    Yup! At least that's been everyone's experience that I've talked to! Just don't go over 5ppm is all because then you can stall out your cycle which is obviously no good

    Yeah, I'd be worried if ammonia didn't stink haha

    Oh, really? It'll be quicker? Great! I'll add in some more ammonia tonight, once I ate my dinner. (The ammonia stinks so bad. It's like alcohol only worse!! :I)

    Okay I think you should bump up the ammonia to 4ppm if you can. 2ppm is going to take longer, and that's not half the point of a Fish-less cycle lol but if you keep doing 2ppm it's going to take longer than it already is so if you bump it to 4ppm, I suspect you'll see nitrites by the end of the week

    Thanks!
    And I think it was in between the 5th and the 7th I put in the ammonia. I don't remember because I had to restart the whole tank and get some better decorations..

    Oh no worries I don't mind the questions!!

    Okay so how long exactly have you been doing this cycle? It usually takes two-ish weeks for nitrites to show.

    Okay. Last question about my cycle!
    So I was testing with my liquid test kit, the ammonia showed 1ppm. Ah, yeah! That took like 5 days.. And then I tested for nitrites. 0ppm, it was the color light blue. Is it going to take a while for the nitrites to show up? I feel like I just started on fish cycling! I don't remember how it happened..

    You must be annoyed with all my questions. Sorry.

    Yeah she's in my Betta log.

    No I offered this one time since I was already being paid for the pet-sitting but we're arranging for me to come over once a month to help her clean it out I'll be paid for that
