Sandra the fish rookie Posted January 12, 2021 Share Posted January 12, 2021 Hi everyone, So my fish in tank finally has started to cycle yesterday morning (Day 1). my ammonia is at around 0.2 ppm, 0 ppm Nitrite, 0 ppm Nitrate PH 7.3 Temp 78.2. Fish were all acting fine. I added 1/2 cap of prime and did not feed them. That evening, I tested the water again, and ammonia was at 0.25 ppm, Nitrite, 0 pm Nitrate 0 ppm, Temp 78.4. Fish are all fine acting normally. I finally received my Fritz zyme 7, and added 1 Cup per the instructions. I also did not feed them. This morning (Day 2) PH 7.3, Ammonia, 0.3 ppm, Nitrite 0 ppm, Nitrate 0 ppm, Temp 78.2. I did a 10% (maybe a touch more) water change, 1/2 cap of Prime (in my new water) and 1/2 cup of Fritz Zyme. My albino cory cat was kinda resting on the bottom.. I FREAKED.. so made sure he was still alive, and he responded to me touching him and zipped away. Checked my ammonia again, it was 0.25 ppm Nitrite 0 ppm Temp 78.4. I plan on doing a FULL panel tonight again, and depending on results, add prime but will also add the rest of the Fritz bacteria (1/2 cup). I have a 20 gallon high, per the instructions, its half cup per 10 gallon. Am I doing everything right? Any suggestions or recommendations are VERY welcomed and appreciated 🙂 Sandra (the fish rookie) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
