How long does it take bacteria in a cycled tank to convert Ammonia to Nitrate?


Recommended Posts

If the tank is fully cycled it should happen fast enough that you can’t detect it. Essentially, that’s how you know a tank is cycled. I know my tanks produce ammonia on a daily basis, but I can’t pick it up on a test, because it’s being converted to nitrite and then nitrate at a rate fast enough that I can only pick up nitrates.
