I have a 5 gallon, filtered tank that I'm attempting to cycle.
I tested the water tonight, and freaked because it had suddenly jumped to 0.5ppm! I did a 50% water change, then tested again... and the reading it the same? I'm not really sure what to make of this. :s It is possible? I threw in a little more Prime just in case, to detoxify the ammonia if it is present, but I'm still terribly confused. Help?
I've been trying to cycle this tank for over a month now, but I keep having ammonia readings that are <0.5ppm, this is the largest spike so far. Should I do another change tomorrow? (I didn't want to to another tonight, I figured that might stress my fish out a bit too much.)
