Evening all, I am a complete newbie so be gentle!
I am trying to cycle a 60l tank. Initially I bought and used tetra safestart. I left the tank for a couple of days and then tested and didn’t have any readings for ammonia nitrites or nitrates. I then read the article on this site in regards to fishless cycling and realised that I have no idea what I’m doing. I decided to start the cycling using the ammonia method thinking that the tetrastart didn’t work. A week later (today I tested for ammonia, nitrites and nitrates and the results are as follows 4ppm, 0ppm 4ppm. These results have confused me completely as I was expecting only the ammonia to give a result. What do I do now as it seems that the tetrastart has worked. I would appreciate some advise.
