I'm not adding any ammonia during my cycling just using live plants and my fish.
yeah I thought it was really weird to that my nitrites were the only thing that spiked
I've been using the same tap since I got my tank and I haven't had any readings of nitrites until today
Its not heavily planted but it has a bit that I put in to help with the cycling process. I want to say around 6 or a bit more? I added a lot of water wisteria
I haven't added any new decor since the middle of June. I did take the filter cartridge out on saturday to add in general cure for his gill flukes and put it back in today its a new cartridge to I changed it out last week but had to take it out for a while and just put it back in
