I added Tetra Safestart to get my cycle back in my 2.5g tank that has been up for over 3 months. I added it 1 week ago.
My betta now has bitten some of his tail and after a couple of days it is now a little bit black around the edges.
I tested my water today and it is:
I used Prime and StressCoat+ 24 hours prior to adding the TSS
Does StressCoat interfere with the API liquid test kit readings for ammonia?
I thought i heard that somewhere.
Is it possible that i have cycled and the ammonia reading is due to interference from the Stresscoat???
Not sure what to do at this point....if i should change his water (which i'm not supposed to do for another week with TSS),
or, just wait for a while.
Is it possible to have 15ppm nitrates and NOT be cycled??
I'm sooo confused.
