Robinowitz Posted March 19, 2022 Share Posted March 19, 2022 I set up a new 10 gallon quarantine tank 2 days ago. I seeded it with media from one of my cycled tanks. I have 4 new livebearers and 3 mystery snails in it and am testing parameters daily to follow the nitrogen cycle progression. All parameters are good except for nitrites which read .25-.50ppm. I’ve done 40% water changes each day with prime added to bind the nitrite. Why didn’t my cycled media bring BB to deal with nitrites from the cycled tank that has no nitrite issues? Any guesses? Any other thoughts? I’m trying to figure out how to have access to a cycled quarantine tank on demand without having it up and running as a cycled tank all the time.
