I don't know what is going on. I started cycling the beginning of feb. 2 months ago! My nitrites have gone up a little then go back to zero, my nitrates stay at 5.0. My ammonia is around 4.0. I have no idea what is going on and am ready to just empty it and try again. It's crazy! Someone please tell me what is going on! It's a 10 gallon. I just don't know what to do. Oh an the nitrates in my water are around 5.0 as it's that way in my other tank to. I am just getting so annoyed with it. Something should have happened by now.
