Hey guys, Im new to this as well. Been trying to cycle fishless with a piece of shrimp. Started Jan 1st. 10 gallon FW with filter and heater. Heat is at 83.
So I got bloom, and then ammo and now its Feb6th and still not seeing anything.
Ammo is 4ppm (down from 5-6ppm last week)
Nitrite is above 0 but below .25 still has a blue hue but not 0.
Nitrate is 0
Filter is running.
Nitrite has been at this level since week 2 or so. Any suggestions? More shrimp? Leave it? I don't want to add another if it will raise the ammo to like 8ppm and stall the cycle. I know patience is the key to this. Anything I can do?
