I know cycles can take nearly a month, but I just dont feel like im making any headway. Im trying to cycle my 20 gallon long, its been running for 2 week with ammonia, filter, heater, gravel and driftwood. I did add some extra ammo carb to the filter cartridge before starting, not sure if this is altering my cycle?
Its a 40 gallon filter.
I dose my ammonia when it get downs to like .5 or 1...I accidently over dosed two days ago to a little more than 2 but it only reads like 2 now...i dont think its ever been 4+ since I started.
My Nitrite and Nitrate isnt moving at all :/
Should I see more changes yet? Am I missing a step? Is there anything I could do to help get it moving?
I dont have any extra established filters so I really have to do this from scratch. Should I get some bottled BB from the petstore and add it?
