Anyone know the reason why I'm not getting nitrite? 5 days into cycling 1ppm of ammonia 20 ppm nitrate but no nitrite, I dose a drop of aquaforest bio s everynight
I used ro di made synthetic saltwater, and heres the pic, it's a 20 gallon aio tank, also used caribsea live sand, started the cycle 5 days ago, used shrimp as ammonia source removed it when the ammonia reached 2ppmare you using ocean water, or ro di made synthetic saltwater (this factors into time booster assessments)
It said 1 drop per 27 gallons everyday for the first two weeks of a new tankOn the directions bottle of aqua forest, does it say one drop per night or does it have you add a certain volume of the product all at once can you relay the bottle directions to us. I haven’t used it before so need to know volumes they recommend
Went from 2->1-> then .25, now for 4, days still 0 nitriteReading about that aqua forest product it is a probiotic bacteria. Designed to accelerate decomposition of organic matter. Maybe they are doing their jobs and decaying organics in the sand. Also did it go from 2 to 1ppm? Or did it go from 2ppm to zero back to 1ppm?
