Re: [APD] Hiccup

Further on with this tank - 6th day.

I've now got a tank with zero ammonia, 0.5-1ppm of nitrite and 10ppm of nitrate.

I've not added any more ammonia and the nitrite level is not reducing.

So either it's stuck or the new API liquid kit is misreading the level and 
it's much higher.

Any one got a spare nitrite colorimeter? ;-)

I'll wait until the nitrite goes to zero and then start this tank again. But 
this time I'll add pure calcium carbonate and sodium bicarbonate to get the 
GH and KH up.
