Ok, so I'm on the verge of giving up on waiting for the right bacteria to fall out of the air. I'm on the 4th week of cycling my tank and have not had luck lowering my nitrite levels for two weeks now. I also do not have enough posts to post in the classified forum - but by the time I do, I probably wouldn't need any help.
So, I'm looking for some used filter media or someone who has knowledge of the best place to go on a wild goose hunt in South Jersey in an attempt to find someone kind enough to offer me some. I've tried my two nearest petsmart locations - and they point me to the boxes of brand new filter media on the shelf - yeah, that helps, thanks.
I'm getting a little on the upset side here since I've been waiting so long and my betta has been making due in a 1.75gal bowl with a heater for the past two weeks. Can anyone help me with this? I am in Atlantic County, New Jersey.
