I am presently cycling a 33 gal aquarium using the fishless method. My ammonia levels are under control, I am adding approx 2.5pmm of ammonia daily and have zero readings after about 8 hours. I do have high Nitrite readings and high Nitrate readings. Right now I am just waiting for my Nitrites to spike and then go down. My question is: can I safely add a Betta at this time? As I say my ammonia is under control and the other two are coming along nicely. The only reason I ask is I have to go to the local LFS and I would pick one up while I was there.(I feel really sorry for them)
Anyway, any help will be very much appreciated.
