Good morning all
I am getting a constant Ammonia reading of .25 and I wasn't checking for Nitrates figuring the cycle was still ongoing. Since I was testing the fresh tanks, I went ahead and did the Nitrate on the reef and got a reading of 160. I just did about a 75% water change and will retest here in a few hours, but, is the high Nitrate reading indicative that the cycle is complete? All other paramters, Calcium, Phospahte, pH and hardness are at proper levels.
Tank has been running 22 days with liverock and 15 days with the CUC plus two Peppermint Shrimp (my Aiptasia hunters).
