Yea that's strange after 15 days... I'd say one more week test again if it's still at 2ppm somethings up. Maybe try retesting ammonia maybe you made a slight mistake with the test and it's giving you a false reading. If you clean the vial with tap water make sure it's COMPLETELY clean and dry.What I thought also just odd ammonia is still 2ppm
Yea only thing I think it could be. I'd either do another WC or wait a week and see if it goes down at all.I clean with rodi water and I have been testing every other day and I just did a 30% water change to see if I could notice a difference in ammonia test there was 0 so maybe I overdosed ammonia and it’s much higher then 2ppm?
I'm assuming 100% water change?cycles don't stall like we've been told Do you see how his API kit said he had eight parts per million below, not cycled, but after one water change the aquarium was instantly ready and then turned into a reef? https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/100-water-change.752693/page-2 old cycling rules...www.reef2reef.com
14 pages on how to fix that tank above.
step 1 change water
step two, add some life
step three put down the test kits
step four post us proof pics I link them to page fifteen.
*as we debate what is shown for a year there, remember we aren't talking test kit stated params there for pages. we think those are wrong in nearly every stated case.
what we do speak about is # of days underwater, which you've met, and dosing a booster, which you have
we then use tank pics with animals in it as the final proof, we never never ever believe the stated test kit ranges, that's key in the success of the pages and the timeliness of each cycle call.
your specific start date was a few days ago. I know your tests dont agree, they're not factored above and we keep turning out great systems and occasionally a seneye owner spot checks us; we pass
seneye test kit owners are the only ones we believe on a one off reading.
Yeah that's weird then. I mean a lot of reports recently that Dr. Tim's One and Only does not seem to really be working, but well if you have live rock defo should have the nitrifiers you'd need. Do you have a pic of your tank?Added
I added a few pounds of Live Rock and dr tims one and only
