I have to admit, LOL, when I first used ammonia I put almost a cup into my 29g!! After a few water changes it got down to 4ppm. It didn't hurt my rock or my cycle. Just test and see where it's at.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

If your nitrites are off the charts I would suggest a water change so you can read them.

Let them ride until they are off the charts for a for a couple days. Then the water change.
