I'm certainly hoping it won't be a whole week. LOL I cycled with pure ammonia on my 29g and it cycled in less than a week. And it too had established LR in it. i also probably put way too much flake food in yesterday, I have only a few snails and hermits so the rest is probably rotting

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

LOL Now you're telling ME about patience. Too funny. But yeah, I'm uber impatient. I've been on this build since the beginning of the month. I want some fish finally. I won't be ordering til at least next week though with this ammonia issue. :-(

I love this new set up. That rock is amazingly purple. I love that rock. It reminds me of part of the gravel in my freshwater tank. Awesome rock...

Thanks guys, ran me almost $50 for 6 lbs but I think it adds alot of color. Plus it didn't have any hitch hikers that I could find, so pretty clean rock.

Yeah I'm hoping the ammonia will go down today, I'll test later tonight. I'm not sure if it matters but I also used live sand too.
