My mom set up a 38 gallon freshwater tank. I am helping her cycle it and get it ready for fish. The cycle is just taking forever!! She is getting impatient - I don't blame her! She keeps saying "I thought you knew what you were doing!" LOL So it's been cycling for THREE months! I put some pellets in at the beginning and let them rot. The ammonia took like two months to rise and drop. The ammonia is now 0. But the nitrite is stuck at 5ppm. It's been there for a month. What is the deal?! Is there any way I can speed this up?! Argh! Thanks!
