My 20g long has been up for almost a week now, and I've done daily tests for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate. Ammonia has showed up on the test. This morning I used a product call Stress-Zyme, in hopes of boosting the beneficial bacteria. I tested tonight and ammonia was present, nitrite was not, and nitrate measured out to about 20ppm.

So, is that a result of the Stress-Zyme? Or do you think the test malfunctioned? I'm new to fish keeping, actually its my first tank, and I thought nitrite should appear before nitrate.

Any ideas? Thanks.
