Cycle results anything to worry about
 
OK Guys please see table of results and your advise.


Date 7/2 10/2 12/2 16/2 24/2
Nitrate 0 0 0 0 10 (ppm)
Nitrite 0 0 0 0 2 (ppm)
GH 53 35 35 35 71.6 (ppm)
KH 35 35 35 35 53 (ppm)
PH 7 7 7 7 7
Amonia 0 .125 .25 .25 .05 (mg/l)

Not being to switched on the higher nitrite concentration concerned me so I did about 15% to 20% water change but the results were not maraby different

ie

Nitrate 10
Nitrite 2 (although slightly lower on scale)
Amonia somewhere between 0.25 and .5 now so a little better.

I apologise for not having data for the 8 days between last 2 tests.

The fish appear happy and eat well although I think I will drop off on the amounts but I have lost none and the freshwater plants appear OK.

Tank is 4 x 2 x 1.5 and kept at about 27 Deg C (summer here) droping to 26 at night.

Filtration is internal powerhhead and sponge and externalFluval 405 cannister.

Do I need to worry about these results.

Again thanks

Other than the 2 ppm of nitrite that you had there, overall it looks fine to me. Keep up with the water changes and it should be fine. Ammonia should also be kept below 0.05 ppm.
