My tank has bee up for 48 hours now, with two shrimp getting the cycle going. I get home from work and walk through the door....the whole house smells like (for lack of a better description) urine. I don't have any pets, so I know it has to be the tank.
Is this normal and if so, when will it go away?
If it helps, it's a 55 gal
tank, 4" DSB
, two MJ1200's circulating the water right now, no live rock or inhabitants yet.
Also, the water is still VERY cloudy from the sand storm, and I'm guessing this will effect any specific gravity testing? Is this correct? I haven't tested yet, but I know it's not anywhere near where it should be. Do I need to wait for the dust to settle to test?
