fishless cycle 14th day..
i started my fishless cycle on july 15..now its july 29th 14 days..my water got cloudy on the next day and hasnt cleared up and my ammonoia is still at around 4-5ppm..is my cycle stalled...40g breeder...no seeded media..aquaclear 70 & aquaclear 30..temp is at (84-86f)
It can take 6-8 weeks to cycle a tank...even when a bio-seed is used. You need to be patient. Also, bear in mind that too much ammonia can stifle development of nitrosomas bacteria so don't be afraid to perform water changes to keep ammonia on the low side. I would also consider using a bio-seed like Seachem Stability or API QuickStart.
adding Seachem Stability or API QuickStart wont affect my cycle..about how much water change
