Hello all, how goes it??


So its like this, I set up my 60gallon tank (canister filter) on Thurs night, checked the water prior to adding 5 glowlight tetras on Fri evening.
Results were:
PH 7.0
Amm 0
Nitrites 0.3 ( not sure why, could it be in the tap water??)
Nitrates 0.

Checked the levels again today, results were:
PH 7.5
Amm 0
Nitrites 0.3
Nitrates 50
The only thing thats odd to me is the nitrites -perhaps someone knows why?
Does it look to you as if the cycling process is going ok?
I have been feeding once a day, being careful not to overfeed, i think its going ok, but welcome your opinions/ideas, folks!!
I also added my catfish to the tank yesterday.

Thanks P-Fans!!

i might just leave it for a couple of weeks, which is the absolute max. I can wait cos' my P's are really starting to to big for their current home.

Provided my amm and nitrite levels are low, i'll do it then. :smile:
