help!!!!!! all of a sudden my ammonia is at 2.0 and my nitrates are at 40. i did do some cleaning a week ago and noticed my drip plate was not fully dripping over my bio balls so i cleaned the plate and now it trips over every ball. and i cleaned the polishing sponge in fresh water. may i be going through another cycle with the sponge being cleaned in fresh and not salt water and the bio balls not being used now are being used and have no culture on them yet? protein scimmer was also off for 2 days and was cleaned and working again.
