Razzy Posted December 1, 2014 Report Share Posted December 1, 2014 Hello! New member here and posting about my fluval spec 5 gallon tank I'm currently cycling to get ready for some shrimp I've had it set up for around 4 weeks. For the past week Ammonias been 0-0.50 ppm. Nitrites are really elevated to 2.0ppm and nitrates are elevated to 40-80 ppm. I've been doing some water changes to keep the NITRATES and NITRITES down but is there something else i can do? I'm afraid that the cycle is stsalling maybe or should i just continue doing what im doing with the water changes every day. I did also add tetra safestart like 2 weeks ago. I also have prime to help lower nitrites and nitrates and test the water with my API master test kit. I'm just worried about the cycle stalling. It's my first fish tank. Thanks for your inputs. Did a bit of research and most ppl say it's just at i t's peak and I'm close to finishing the cycle and it'll soon seem like the high ratings drop off a cliff.. but not sure.
