Monday I started my fishless cycle with 50 lbs base rock, 6 lbs live rock.
Tuesday amonia was 0.25. Wed. amonia 0.5 and I added another 8 lbs of base rock and 6-8 more lbs of live rock. All live rock from an established fowlr
tank. Substrate is 40 lbs standard reef sand and 40 lbs live sand. I have been feeding the tank every other day with frozen omnivore food. Tank is 72 gal
with 20 gal
sump. Ok, friday amonia was 1.0, but today which is sunday amonia has fallen to 0.5.
Nitrites are reading 0.00 thus my confusion. What am I missing to have amonia fall but no nitrites?
