    I did a water change yesterday, and thought i would test my water today.

    The results were:

    Ammonia - 0
    NitrIte - 5
    NitrAte - off the chart!

    So whats going on?

    My tank is about 9 months old, and fully cycled.

    I have not changed any of the filter.

    All my fish are behaving normaly and look well.

    Can anyone help?

    Edit: Oh, i just remembered, i did the water change because i had added a new bit of would and it got cottonwool like growth on it. Could this be why my stats are so crazy?
