Is my Fishless cycle complete ??? #12
I now have readings of
ammonia 0ppm (after 24hrs)
Nitrite 0ppm
Nitrate 80 ppm

Today has been the first day where my nitrite has been 0ppm

What do I need to do now before I get my fish ?
How long should I leave it ? Can I get the fish Sunday ?

Thanks Craig

Re: For Violet -Zebra Plec :-) #13
Right here are my readings
Tap water ph-7.5
Tap water ph after 24hrs-7.3
Tap water gh-50ppm
Tap water kh-50ppm

Unfortunately my tank isn't they large after my substrate and bog wood it takes just over 39ltrs of water

I understand that I am limited to fish type and fish numbers

Hope this helps you in suggesting some fish

Thanks Craig

Re: For Violet -Zebra Plec :-) #14
Hi fish lady
I have just performed a nitrate test again and shook the bottle and banged it on my worktop and still got a reading of 5ppm
Do I need to do anything ?
How far away am I from adding fish ?
Also what fish would be good for me to start with ?
Thanks Craig

Re: For Violet -Zebra Plec :-) #15
I think this is a fish I need to leave alone until I get another tank and improve my fish keeping skIlls !
Just tested my tank after 10 days of cycling, my ammonia levels were just above 0ppm after 24hrs and have been dropping from 3ppm to just above 0ppm for the last 7days
My nitrite levels have now dropped to 2ppm and my nitrate is at 5ppm

Is this all going well ?
Thanks Craig

Re: For Violet -Zebra Plec :-) #18
What an amazing fish ! How hard are they to keep compared to more commonly available plecs ? And where are they best bought from ?

Re: Fishless cycling #19
Thanks for the reply violet
The tap safe I am using removes both
My temp is set at 24.5'c at the min so I have just turned it up !
It's reassuring to hear that your cycles have taken 3 days to lower the ammonia level ..... I was beginning to question what I was doing !
Thanks again for your help

Fishless cycling #20
Hi I have started to cycle my tank using ammonia as recommended by a few of you on here, but there has been no drop in ammonia levels since I added my first dose. The ammonia content is still 3ppm 36hours after this first dose. Is this normal ? If not what can I do about it ?
Thanks Craig
