I started my 72 gallon tank 4 weeks ago with about 25 lbs of dry rock then about a week later added 30-45 lbs live rock.
Now 3 weeks later I still have:
in between 4ppm and 8ppm ammonia
Between 20ppm and 40ppm nitrate
Usually my tanks take at the longest 2 weeks to cycle (10 gallon quarintene, 20 long reef, 28 FOWLR
) our 55 took about 2 and a half weeks.
But why won't any of my parameters drop ???
The only ammonia sources would be
Sergeant major damsel
And whatever is still on the live rock.
