Unsure of next step


Recommended Posts

Currently fishless cycling in a 10 gallon tank with two anubias and one Java fern
Added ammonia to 3ppm. Waited for a drop and rise in nitrites, which happened two days ago. Added more ammonia two days ago and this is my reading this morning. 0ammonia 5+nitrite? and maybe 3nitrate?

Do I wait for nitrite to drop to add more ammonia? Do I add more ammonia? Did I ruin/slow down my cycle? Do I do a water change to lower nitrite?(I have chloramine out of the tap but I have had a bucket sitting for about a week that’s treated with prime)


thank you to all that have already helped me and sorry if I’m pumping too many questions ❤️
