well it's been a month since i first started my tank. my ph is fine, my amonia is 0.5ppm (i think), but my nitrites are like the second highest bar on the little scale that i use (i think it's 2.5ppm?)jerry_plakyda said:Just let the natural cycleing process continue without adding any products that may have an effect on ammonia.
