I began a 100g to-be reef tank about a week ago. Added DSB
, live rocks, and a JBL mikroorganism small bag three days ago. Sliced raw shrimps was added two days ago.
Since then I did testings every day. Ammonia testing (JBL) always result in a negligible value, and so does nitrite (tetra) testings. With curiousity I just did a nitrate test and result in 12.5 mg
Is it possible that I missed the ammonia and nitrite increase during those periods? Or the nitrate I'm reading is just a "left-over" brought over in the live rocks?
I would like to share a picture of my tank and a small crab that was already in the rock when I arranged them.
