Hello all. Looking forward to any helpful information. I am on Day 6 of my cycle and I am getting a greenish yellow merky color for ammonia. Temperature 75.5 PH - 7.9 Nitrites - 0 Nitrates - 10. I have a 65 gallon tank with 25 lbs of live rock 25 lbs of base rock and 60 lbs of live sand (about 3 inches deep). I have 2 rio 1700 pumps for flow. My filtration is based on the nano tanks with the back 4 inches of my tank where the filtration is. Water flows from the back center of my tank down to 2 filters right and left where the filter floss bio balls and carbon are. Water then goes between separators and to the pumps where it is pushed back into the tank. One side pumps the water up high and the other down low on the other side. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Mike
