The one rock is nicely covered with some green algae. Looks almost like grass. I can take a pic if you'd like. But don't know if it would be enough to do the whole tank. And wouldn't it have absorbed the ammonia and nitrite at the same time? When it went in my ammonia finally spiked and proceeded along what you would expect out of a cycle.

You wouldve had to add quite a bit of lr to complete a cycle that quickly

They are doing great. Sadly, the damsel didn't make the cycle beginning...I think helped it along. This was followed by yesterdays death of the hermit crab who ate before mentioned damsel.

Clowns can withstand very poor water conditions. They stand the best chance of survival. Just keep up with your water changes.
