Ok.. I bought 50# of LR
. He told me it would be FIJI, but when I got there it was Tonga Branch.. It was not what I was looking for, but I still bought it. Here is my problem; the guy told me not to wash the rock off, it had a ton of die off, but it didn't smell too bad. Well when I put the rock in my tank my Amonia level went to 7.5 ppm
and my nitrites and nitrates were off of the chart. well after after 3 weeks my amonia droped but my nitrites and nitrates were still sky high. I took one of the pieces of live rock out of my tank and it smelled worse then anything I have ever smelled in my life. So I took all of the rocks out of my tank and scrubed them in a sw
Do you think the high amonia killed what ever was on the rock?
is it ok that I took the rock out of my tank and cleaned it?
thanks for any help.
