Sadly I don't have light that would sustain a coral so it will likely die

Also tested params last night and found;

Ammo .25-.50
TrItes .00
Trates .00

Still got a ways to go. Least I have something to look at ^_^

actually once niTRITES are converted to niTRATES. so a properly cycled tank will show amm-0 trites-0 and some amount of trates.

I know how cycling works, I've cycled at least a dozen freshie tanks this year ^_^

But with visible Ammo and 0 nitrites I've found 99% of the time that testing for trates is wasted.

Today's results prove my hypothesis about nitrate testings.
