So I'm in a catch-22 I put my fish in a tank too soon and mailed away my smaller tank to my facebook friend to house his feeding stock for his Oscar. So I'm tempting to do a tank cycle with my Bettas in their tank. So far I have been doing 25-50% (probably closer to 50%) water changes daily. The ammonia is staying at almost zero but I'm a week into the process and the nitrites are non-detectable perfectly blue with the API master test kit. Will this tank ever cycle with the current water change cycle or am I forced to risk spiking the ammonia to get the nitrites to do what they need to do so I can finally get nitrates?
