Ok test results this morning are ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 160ppm.
I’ve done a water change and have redosed the tank with ammonia, which I will have to keep doing until Wednesday because that’s the earliest I can get the tank stocked.
How long can the bacteria survive without ammonia? Thinking about the logistics of it all; I’ll be getting fish roughly Wednesday afternoon but the last dose of ammonia will be going in Tuesday evening so will that suffice?
