PostSubject: AND SO IT GOES ON.....   Tue Jul 08, 2008 10:03 pm

Today -

Ammonia - 0.25
Nitrite - 5.0 - must be the spike
Nitrate - 80

Just realised that I have been doing this for nearly a month - is that normal?? I am dosing just up to 2.0 now so hope I am nearly at the end of this, perhaos by the weekend?

Well done Motsy! Just keep dosing the tank as you have been until you are able to get your fish. Keep checking the water too, just to make sure it stays 0-0.
When you are abe to get the fish, test the water, if it is 0-0 do a BIG water change - at least 80%, and then go and buy your fish.

easy-peasy!! Very Happy

Hurrah! Good for you...when you have 0-0 readings for two days straight, you can do your water change and buy your fish. So a trip to the LFS over the weekend is on the cards, I'd say...Wink
