10 days into cycle and Amm.@0 and Nitrites @ 0.3???

Just wondering if this is right? After 10 days the pH is @ 8.1, Ammonia @ 0, and the Nitrites @ 0.3. It looks like I'm coming to the end of my cycle. I'll wait at least 2 more weeks to make sure but this seems like a fast cycle. Nitrates are @ about 50.

I cycled my tank with 65Lbs of LR. Using 60Lbs of Aragamax sugar sand, one bag(20Lbs) of AragAlive sand. Plus I got 1-2 cups of LS from the LFS from a tank thats been established for 2 years.

Did you have an ammonia spike? Was the LR cured?

If the ammonia spiked and nitrites are currently spiking you are almost done- congrats.

Yeah it did spike. Amm. and Nitrites both went off the chart on my test kit
LR was uncured and in transit for 8-10 Hrs to my place.
