@Carey - Yes that's where I got the pic from cause the one on my camera didn't turn out, was too blurry.

Yep it was. Research I read, shows to increase again once it's down to 1ppm, and to do that until it goes down to 0 within 12 hours.

I think so...........My tank may end up being done cycling before I can buy anything LOL. What better way to learn about keeping pristine water than to take forever after it's cycled and keep it ready til I buy something to put in it.

Wow you sure are cycling fast. Did you add any bacterial products like bio-spira or stability? I added bio-spira and it cycled me pretty quick, but not THAT quick.

No, I have not added anything. Just a store brand ammonia. I checked it for other ingredients and also shook it before I bought it. When I opened it, I checked the smell. Ugg did I forget how strong that was, my eyes really watered but there was only ammonia smell no lemon or anything.

The live rock that was removed and put back in a few times has red spots here and there on it. Also some green and white patches. The red dots have been there right from the start and there are more so I'm assuming that it was still live and it has started it's coraline algae.

I'm gonna test in a few min.

I still have to move the big pieces down and re-arrange but I can't keep my hands in tank as I have cuts and they kinda burn a tiny weenie little bit.
