    Sorry it took so long for me to update you on the result of cycling my betta tank. After our last conversation I continued to have high nitrite and nitrate readings. So I took a chance and torn down the tank and started anew. Instead of using Seachem Stability I went out and purchased Aqua Safe Start. Within 3 days the tank was completely cycled and ready for my betta. It has been 5 days now and the betta is doing fine. Tested the water and this are the results.


    I hope this can help others.

    First I want to thank you for replying to my post. At this time the ammonia reading is at 0. I will take your advice and stop feeding the tank and watch to see if the nitrite and nitrate drop. I will post any changes that occur. If they drop, I will add a fish and carefully monitor for any spikes. Tanks again for your suggestion.

    Makes sense to me Bob. Some time back I started a topic on room temperature vs tank temperature, using my rack of 5 gallon tanks. I've got the same rack of 5's open for the summer. Man are DO meters crazy expensive! I did find a liquid DO test online, I've got plenty of Prime on hand, time for a bit of playing around!

    LOL! You had me nervous - I thought I had surface scum licked already, and I'm SO not ready to have a "reputation to uphold!" Happy messaging!
