Hmm... well if there is no ammonia and no nitrite's and there is nitrate than your tank is done cycling. Well thats what I think anyway! And its a good thing you dont have ammonia or nitrite
I don't understand this one.:mrgreen:jsm11482 said:I have fish in there and I do have 5ppm nitrates so I expect the nitrites to eat the ammonia and the nitrates to eat the nitrites.
Josh, believe me. She ate my cryptocoryne crispatula(plants having leaves at 70 cm length).:blueshake:jsm11482 said:It is also very important that they do not eat my plants. I read that Bristlenose's will eat them if they have a shortage of algae. It's probably not worth the risk, plus they get too big (15gal tank). I will look into the oto's. Thanks!
