Water test results as of today, TEN days in with seeding from an established filter, ammonia is between .5 and 1 ppm. I have done a single dose of ammonia, on day one. I have niether changed water nor added any ammonia since then, I have just been testing the water.
Nitrite, first time I have tested for it, is in the two to five ppm range, man, sometimes these dang charts are tough to read.
Shouldn't the ammonia have dropped to zero, or at least be zero tomorrow, based on the decline? The article mentioned a steep decline, but It's not as steep as I thought it would be.
Was the Nitrite test last night? 2-5 PPM is a pretty big gap. 2 PPM = no issue. 5 PPM can possibly set the ammonia nitrifiers back.
I would check both again tonight and relay the results & we can go from there. I would continue to do nothing but test for the time being..
