    i checked my water yesterday when i got home. my ammonia is low. i didnt chech it with the box i the water in the testube was yellow so that means that it is like .50 but my nitrite and nitrate are still high. now that my ammonia is getting low will the others go down.

    also would fish rather be infront of the window or along a wall with out a window?

    The nitrites should start going down soon.

    And it is best to keep tanks out of direct sunlight (ie away from windows). Otherwise you'll end up with lots of algae.

    Question Chelle, shouldn't he be adding some ammonia? even though nitrates are up? (i never made a cycled without fish) I thought you would be adding ammonia until you add fish into the tank. :?:

    Yes, he should be adding 5ppm of ammonia every day.
