Cycling help !
My tank is finally starting to cycle and I need some help ! This is a fish in cycle. Now that I am seeing some nitrite at .25 how often should I do a water change and how much at a time ? I am using Prime water conditioner which detoxifes ammonia, nitrite and nitrate when I do water changes now but I am afraid I might be doing to many because I have read its not a good idea to have to clean water. Its a 5 gallon tank and I never do a 100 percent water change only like 50`s and 25`s and sometimes a 55 percent. If I see the nitrite getting high should I just add Prime to the tank or do a water change ? On a good note my ammonia was almost 0 this morning with only maybe a slight nitrate and .25 nitrite. Thanks for any help this is my first time trying to cycle a tank.
