I am attempting to do a fishless cycle of a newly set up 29 gallon tank. I put in some ammonia and some fritz turbo start and tested the water the next day. I’m not seeing any ammonia or nitrate but the nitrite seems to be high, at dark purple levels. I put in some turbo start today. In completely new to this, and this is the second day of the process, can everyone tell me if this is normal and what I should do next? Thank you!
I Recently started a Biocube 32g this is my current light schedule 1. 1:00pm-6:00pm 2.11:30am-7:30pm 3. 8am-10pm I don’t know if this light schedule is good enough??
