I just tested my tank 11 days into the cycle and the readings are as follows:
temp - 78
Amm - 2.5 (I tested 4 days ago and it was 3-4.)
Trite - >25 (off the charts)
Trate - >50 (off the charts)
I'd say this was the peak of my trites, how long do I have?
Another thing, when I drop a couple shrimp in there they are gone within 3-4 days so I add more. I've gone through about 6 shrimp, is this bad? I am just starting to see diatoms.
I have an unidentified sand colored little crab in there who hitchhiked with the ls
, I'll try to post a pic.
