Fish-in cycling: what level of ammonia/nitrites is toxic? .25 OK?
I'm on day 26 of fish-in cycling for my 46-gallon. There are 6 comet goldfish in there currently.
I have been "seeding" the tank with media and decor from my cycled tank. I have been keeping the ammonia and nitrites in check with large water changes. Is .25 OK until the tank is cycled? My fish seem to be doing fine.
.50ppm is when ammonia and nitrites become harmful. 40ppm for nitrates.
