Checked my water stats this morning before going to lfs and my nitrites were off the chart? Checked tap water they all fine. Changed water again today and ammonia still zero but nitrites still off chart. Will run the fish less cycle over the next few days. I was adding ammonia every twelve hours when I was told to test every twelve but add only every 24 hours.
Maybe that may have caused a problem. Was I reading nitrites wrong? Added drops and left for five mins and the colour changed from purpel to blue.
I did notice when I add drops to tap water they turn straight to blue but when add drops to tank water it goes purple first then after time turns light blue.
