I thought my tank was cycled but I do but think it is... (For one I'm using he API strips which I have heard gives unreliable readings) and I have API liquid ammonia test, my ammonia is not reaching high levels, but my nitrite and nitrate are high using strips... 29gal with three (2 - 2.5 inches) in body length Water test Ammonia .025 Nitrite 5 Nitrate between 80 - 160 Ph 7.5 Kh 80 Gh 120 - 180 Did a 90% water change yesterday and used prime I do 90% water changes every 5 days, I have 30 HOB filter, and a sponge filter was added two weeks ago. I live in florida so water temp stays around 78-80 degrees. Fish act and look extremely healthy good eaters, showing huge growth, trying to spawn breeding stars on both males right now, in two months since I added them to the tank. Do you guys think this could be bad test results? I tested three times before yesterday's water change after the water change and today... And get almost identical readings each time. Into plan on purchasing the API master test kit very soon.
