In cycling, ammonia will go down once the bacteria converts it to nitrites which you should see spiking up. Then in a few days, nitrites should go down and you should be able to detect nitrates.:D

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Nitrites

My nitrites have gone up the past couple days and are extremely high! It's been cycling for about 2 weeks now and i never detected ANY ammonia! My ph is also super high. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong???

Hi Sarah,
Have you detected any nitrates?
Pls do more water changes to dilute the nitrites if you have fish in the tank.

If you are doing fishless cycling, leave it until you detect nitrates.
