So glad to know that you're here to help me make sure things are getting back on track. the cycle unfortunately still isn't complete.
so Nitrate levels are staying low (about 7ppm)
Nitrite levels are still high (about 3.0ppm)
Alkalinity is still unstable but readings look like 70ppm so a little better
and pH is 7.0
I have no drift wood or stones in my tank. substrate is some top fin aquarium gravel. i do have a few plants in there though, could that be messing up my balance?
