    As of two days ago my cycling has completed. Thanks the help. I had to do like 3 50% water changes to get the nitrates down to about 5ppm. Is that normal? And I hope I did that right.

    I plan to use it right away. This will be my 2nd tank that I will be moving my glofish to then stock my front room tank with a Boseman Rainbowfish and a Gourami. I placed the glotank so it’s a background piece for video work meetings and it has cool decos. Let them live their life in it then...

    I ended not taking the gravel out but I did re-fill and empty the tank twice before starting over. It looks like everything is moving along well now.

    Okay, that makes total sense now that you mentioned it about measuring nitrites. I thought it was because my eyes wasn't able to see the color variations on the chart :).

    Hello everyone!! Day 9 testing results are: Ammonia reads 1PPM and nitrites at purple. Not sure what the reading is because the colors look the same but I am guessing it's at .5? If I am following along TwoTankAmin's cycling thread correctly I should be ready to add dose 2 on Day 12 when I...

    Day 6 of restarting the cycling with different ammonia. Now we're making progress here. My last reading was about 2ppm ammonia and .5 nitrites. I am using TwoTankAmin's cycling thread's instructions now that I found it.

    I appreciate the tip. There is an Ace close by and I picked up the Janitorial Strength. Hopefully that does the trick. Awesome, thanks for the reply. It's about an inch so hopefully I'm good. I haven't added any water back yet as I am taking this opportunity to make some changes to the deco. No...

    One more question, sorry. I have the tank almost emptied out but there is still some water in the substrate. Do I need to take that out and clean it before adding in new water?

    Okay. I am not really bummed out I have to empty the tank because at least I know why this isn't cycling. Another learning experience for this old man. I'm in Renton, Washington, USA. Probably the same gloomy weather system as Renton, Scotland though.

    I don't know how I missed it but it says on the second and third line Alkybenzenesulfonate surfactant. You know I did the shake test but I think it didn't show bubbles because the bottle was still full. It wasn't until later when the level was lowered that I could see bubbles after shaking. 🤦‍♂️

    Stuck on cycling

    I might have found the problem. I bought the wrong ammonia. The label says ingredients Ammonia Nitrate but there was a smartlabel so I went to the link and it says: Water Ammonia Hydroxide Tetrasodium EDTA Sodium C10-16 Two questions: Am I right that I got the wrong ammonia? When I get the...
