PostSubject: Tank cycle   Fri Jun 20, 2014 12:34 am

I setup 6 four tanks about 6 months ago and my pepp tank has always tested 0 for nitrate and ammonia while the other 5 went through their tank cycle as normal.Any ideas as to why this is.All the tanks use the same water and substrate.The peppermint tank houses 4 adults and the other tanks house mostly commons.
Any ideas people.
