Sandovalsbco Posted January 10, 2016 Report Share Posted January 10, 2016 So I'm waiting on my tank rack tanks to cycle and I know that it takes longer for tanks with low ph to cycle but how long? I put dr tims one and only in each of my tanks. In each tank I put the amount that is rated for a 60 gallon tank so a bit overkill but it says you can't overdose it. My ph is the lowest that'll read on an api test kit which is 6 so it may be lower. I added ammonia to make it 3 ppm the first day and it is still at that level. My nitrates are raised a little bit like 5 ppm. I'm just looking for someone that has done a fish less cycle on a low ph tank and how long it took. Hopefully it doesn't take longer than my other two tanks did to fish less cycle which was 4 weeks. Btw my neo tank that I started at the same time I did the same thing to and it's moving faster which I figured. Just growing impatient lol I want to stock my tanks.
