    Hi all,

    We have our aquaone 195 tank set up after advice from users on evaporation. To start off we used NSW, live sand & rock but need some more info on the nitrogen cycle.

    Our Ph levels are fine after being low earlier in the week. Our ammonia level is 0 but nitrite is high. Do we just leave everything as it is to find its equilibrium or is it best we intervene now to help turn the nitrite into nitrate? I've read a bit about ways to create ammonia but I understand that we don't need the ammonia yet as we haven't got the correct nitrate levels?

    Any advice or help will be greatly appreciated.
