problems with cycling


Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I've had my first fishtank for 4 months now. it's 30 a gallons tank. I have a good number of growing plants, a few platies that reproduce nicely and a few corydoras. my problem is that since the beginning I've struggled to reduce ammonia to 0 and to increase nitrates. basically, I'm at the same level of my tap water (0.05 ppm ammonia, 1 ppm nitrate and 0.025 ppm nitrites). I've added nitrifying bacteria several times but nothing changes.  is there anything else I should do? is this a problem or not?

thank you very much for your help!
