At 2 weeks along your tank is definitely not fully cycled. I can guarantee you there are still nitrites. I'm actually surprised your ammonia is all gone already and you have nitrates. I kind of wonder if that bio stuff you used didn't actually work some (did you add any old biomedia when setting up the tank, like gravel, decorations, filter media?).hmm... the stones were new, I bought the filter used though so the carbon and sponge were used but I bought a new biomax pack (and eventually a new carbon after the medication), the decorations are from a previous tank as well. I have also been using the nutrafin "cycle" since the beginning.
Cycling usually takes about a month to a month and a half. So your cycle is going pretty well considering your tank hasn't been set up that long.Well that's good to hear. I never knew fish were so high maintenance, but I'm slowly learning... doing what I can. Any information is greatly appreciated thanks a lot
