so I've been doing a fish-in cycle,
5 Gallon, filtered, three live plants: money wort, Anubias, and Oriental Swords ( same as Amazon I /think/ )
blue aquarium gravel
and treated tap. BettaSafe. 7 drops per gallon as told.
I did a change Wednesday night, left Thursday morning, came back Saturday night at like 10:00-10:30. it SHOULD have been time for another water change? 0-o
there was hardly any ammonia, not even 0.2 or anywhere near.
no nitrate, no nitrite 0-o
is this right? >.<;
I had done like a 100% I guess but still. shouldn't there have been SOME?
I was using STRIPS, because they were out of the Master Kit, so I changed it anyway almost 50% just in case, did like around40, then stopped cause he was getting a stress line and I've been away several days and he's been alone except a neighbor who came to feed him and clean out dead leave.s
I put him in the tank....
on like the 13th ( this month )
because he'd been a little ill from the cup, and because we had gotten something funny in the water, I've been doing a ton of 50's and basically 100's, is it just really really REALLY clean or is it possible it cycled? 0-o
I'll still be watching it and all, regardless,
but I just thought it was odd there wasn't anything as far as ammonia or nitrate or nitrite went DX
there's also like 5.5 PH ><
