I have tested my cycling tank water for Ammonia and Nitrites so far. I'm on day 9 of my cycle and I believe I have hit my Nitrite spike (Between 2.00 and 5.00ppm. The shades look about the same but it is much darker than it was yesterday.
Now the Ammonia seems to be going higher and higher I can't actually determine it anymore because it has turned a dark blue and was even more dark blue tonight.
Does this usually happen? I thought that the ammonia was suppose to go down once the Nitrites started going up?
I have a 14gal cycling with shrimp in it. I have several Anacharis bunches in there as well.
