Cycling help

Recommended Posts

Hello! I am very new to the shrimp community. I set up a 10 gallon planted tank about 3 weeks ago with the intention of housing RCS. I used RO water and demineralization it. I checked my parameters today and they are:

Gh- 180 ppm

Kh-40 ppm 




Nitrates- 0ppm


I am worried about the lack of nitrates and the rise in ammonia. Is this normal for starting a cycle? Any and all suggestion would be appreciated.
