Hi, my water now has a salinity around 1.020 - 1.023 ( I usually keep the salinity between these numbers). And Ive used MB7 and MBStartXLM, with a dead shrimp to start the cycling process. Its been around a week now and Im having an ammonia of 1.5. I use saliferts ammonia tester. My nitrites read at around 0.5-1. Recently Ive seen that when people cycle their tanks, they lower the salinity so the growth of bacteria increases. Is it true? And if so, how slow will my bacterial growth be with my salinity right now. Is it okay? or did I ****** my bacterial growth process?
