Hello,

looking for some advice. I’m a newbie attempting a fishless cycle. I have a fluval 250l tank with fluval 307 filter. I dechlorinated the water. Added tetra safe start and am now feeding using dr Tim’s ammonia. After 5 days of following dr Tim’s instructions closely I’ve seen the ammonia go up after each time i add it but never down. Tank reading a small amount of nitrate but no nitrite. Ph is 7.6. Is patience the best bet here? Should I continue to add ammonia every few days as per dr Tim? What happens after the end of dr Tim instructions I.e. 2 weeks

Cycling a tank can take 4 to 6 weeks if done properly.
