k1netics Posted December 27, 2009 Share Posted December 27, 2009 After about two weeks of no noticeable increase in any of the water parameters (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate) I decided to spike the ammonia using 100% pure ammonia. Once I did this, I noticed that the switch to nitrite was very quick (about a day) and have also observed quite a large diatom bloom on the rock and sand. There are definitely little white specs on the glass and throughout the tank (copepods?). As I speak the ammonia level is at 0.25 and dropping with nitrites at about 4ppm and nitrates at 10ppm. My question is, should I continue to feed the tank with reduced amounts of ammonia or stop the input and let the tank just do its thing? Link to comment
