MICRO-TANKER Posted March 16, 2022 Share Posted March 16, 2022 Hello All, I recently bought a new 55 Gal. tank. Its all set up with 2 filters (55 Gal Tidal & 45 Gal Ziss) and i started the cycling process. I added Fritz Fish Fuel Ammonia, it spiked the tank to 4 PPM. I also added the bacteria to the tank. Usually when I set up my tanks i can clearly see Nitrites &\ Nitrates in my Test results. However after about 3.5 weeks the ammonia has lowered down to almost .25 or lower yet i never saw any Nitrite Nitrates which i think is kind of odd.. There is wood in the tank which seems to have algae on it but I am not sure if I should start spiking the tank again to re-cycle it or not.. Has anyone experienced this? * I know I have to wait until ammonia hits 0PPM but with no Nitrite/Nitrate results I'm wondering if the tank has actually cycled correctly. *Also water still has lots of tannin in the water from the wood, that is why the greenish brown color is present in tank.
