I doubt that your tank is cycled in 3 weeks. If you used only dead rock, it might not have even started to cycle yet. How and what are you testing for and the results. Dont make the big mistake of being in a hurry. Normal cycling takes 6-8 weeks, thats with live rock or a piece of shrimp to start the process.
