Another cycling question
So, I have been cycling the tank for about 3 weeks.
Fishless cycle, feeding flake food and have a raw shrimp. 41 gallon tank with sand & live cured rock.
The highest the ammonia reached was 1.0. The highest on nitrates was 10 & nitrites never raised. Is this normal because of the live rock?
I just did a test & everything is zero - the ammonia may be slightly above, but is not .25.
I think I will remove the shrimp & will do a small water change (thinking 20%) & see if that makes it zero.... Any thoughts?
I appreciate the input.
