A little confused with my cycle.
Ok so 17G, about ~30lbs of live rock, 20lbs live sand.
Been running fully for a week now and I've have a shrimp in there that fully decomposed. My highest ammonia reading was ~0.6ppm, nitrate went from 0 to 0.3 back to zero, and my nitrate went from 5, to a little darker than 5, to now 10ppm.
I haven't seen an ammonia or nitrite spike, yet my nitrates are rising. Currently, my ammonia still sits at 0.6. I had cloudy water suggesting a bacterial bloom but it's cleared up pretty much by now. Should I add in another shrimp?
