So my tank is completely cycled after I've been working on getting it cycled for a little under a month now. I went to do the large water change at the end to dilute the amount of nitrates and in doing so added water that was extremely high in ammonia and now my nitrites are back again but it hasn't been a full 24 hours and I'm sure all levels will be down to zero again tomorrow morning. However, I'm just so disappointed because I was looking forward into putting fish in today. :(
I just bought some R/O water from my LFS and I'm wondering if I can just do another large water change, say 50%, and then let it run for a few hours and stock my tank.
Do you guys think that if I do this my nitrites will be diluted enough to do this?
