Ok, some good news. I bought Tetra Safe Start with Bio-Spira from my LFS. I threw it in and things seemed to speed up a bit, then stalled again. I went back to the LFS and bought Prime, a water conditioner that's supposed to detoxify nitrite/nitrate and ammonia and make it easier for the biofilter to process them. This morning my ammonia was 3.0, my nitrites 5.0 but my nitrates were through the roof at 160ppm!!! I was so excited - the Prime seems to have kick-started the cycling. I'm hoping maybe even tomorrow or the next day I might be ready for fish. I'm just so glad that the cycle is moving again. Thanks for your interest!
