Hello all,
New to the forum, I am attempting a fishless cycle on my new 36 gallon tank. I am adding ammonia and I am seeing the Nitrites and now I am seeing nitrates, present for about a week now. My question is this; I add in enough ammonia to bring levels to about 3 or 4 ppm, and it is gone the next day, but I am still seeing very high nitrite levels, do I need to just continue waiting? back off on the ammonia? suggestions would be very helpful. thanks in advance.
I have attached picture of my tank, mix of live and fake plants at the moment, plan is to change over to all live plants as they grow. Any suggestions on new plants would also be great. Low maintenance /low light is what I am going for.
