1sttimefishkeeper Posted November 15, 2022 Share Posted November 15, 2022 Hi everybody: I am currently cycling my tank for 2 weeks now, by using fishless cycle with live plants. I put Ammonia (Dr.Tim) into my tank, and raise the level to 2ppm as suggested, no liquid fertilizer, 5 hrs/day lighting 1st day reading => Ammonia (2ppm), Nitrite(0ppm), Nitrate(0ppm) ...... 12th day reading => Ammonia(0.25ppm), Nitrite(5ppm), Nitrate(60ppm) I think my nitrifying bacteria in the tank is converting ammonia progressively to nitrate Does it mean I am done with cycling the tank once the Ammonia, Nitrite level reaches to 0 ppm ? So I can put the live stocks into my tank? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
