No im getting 0ppm of ammonia using liquid tests. Ph is 8 and water temp is 19 degrees Celsius.Is there any ammonia showing up? It can take several weeks for the nitrogen cycle to be completed. I've not had one to get established in less than 2 months.
Low pH and low KH will definitely slow or even inhibit the process, as will low temperatures.
Are you using liquid testing kits? The strips are really not accurate enough to be of much use.
I just dont know about the main pond a few days ago ammonia, nitrite and nitrate were all 0ppm now I have ammonia but nothing else!
