Water Params

Is there a reason why I'm not showing ANY ammonia, nirtrites, or nitrates? I've been cycling my tank for a good month and a half now. I have a filtered 5 gal with 50% weekly water changes.

Do you have live plants and what is the source of your ammonia?

I have no live plants and one betta, he is the source of my ammonia. I also have a marimo moss ball, but I doubt he excretes waste? And oh, I thought you were supposed to show some nitrates to know it's cycled. I feel like an idiot now haha.

That's true, but maybe your water changes take care of that? Try testing nitrates after skipping a water change.
