Hi. I have done about 5 tests over a few weeks and currently my tank is:
as seen here in "Track My Tank".
1) I have yet to see any nitrites. Sup with that?
2) Is my pH ok?
3) Do I need to continue testing pH and KH (tank is cycling (hopefully) but pH and KH have not changed at all).
Your ammonia at 0.5 is quite high. You need more water changes for that.
You may not have seen the nitrites spike as you already have 5 ppm of nitrates.:squint:
I don't think it's necessary at the moment to check your KH. I wouldn't worry about pH unless KH is below 3 which would result to pH crash.
Thanks Blue. So has my tank cycled? (you can check the readings that I've posted in Track My Tank)
I haven't added any ammonia (since I couldn't find any) but I did add 5 Zebra Danios. I thought you weren'y supposed to change water while cycling?
With danios, how will they survive the ammonia?:squint: Ammonia at that level will not let them thrive long enough.
Blue, danios are hardy fish and you know that! They wont thrive but they will cycle the tank and probably fight threw it! :P
But if they seem ok, then I don't see anything wrong with that.
Yes, isnt it called cycling with fish? ;) I hope the poor lil guys will fight threw!
I understand what you mean though.:mrgreen:
