Hi, everyone... 55 gallon tank I have 2 veiltails, and 2 fan tails and another veiltail in QT waiting to be brought to the mansion. I use API drops to test Tank has been established for more than two years Temp varies from 73 to 76 Ammonia 0 Nitrites 0 PH stable at 8.2 Nitrates almost 0 (Test tint is a dark yellow, but not the orange it should be for 10) I have diligently tested my water for ammonia, nitrates and nitrites everyday and so far I have been getting 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites and around 10 nitrates, but tonight, I'm still on 0 on ammonia and nitrites, but I have almost 0 nitrates... should I panic? Is that how a cycle crash happens? The fish are okay, but I am worried that something might happen, like suddenly having a nitrite or ammonia bump and losing them!! I do have Cycle at home if I need it, but I would love to know if this is how it starts and how it can be prevented, if at all. What brings it about? Am I just a worrywart? (I tend to be when it comes to my Goldies... I've lost too many)
