I have a 120L tank that had been previously cycled but I was unable to place stock in the tank and unable to put something in for the bacteria to feed on so I assumed that it had all died off. So I began the cycling process again with raw shrimp but it has been 4 weeks and there has been no decrease in the ammonia content about 0.25-0.50 ppm
and there has been no increase in nitrites. The first time I cycled it I did everything the same and it was done in 4 weeks. I have no live rock as it is very difficult to get in NZ. There is heaps of green algae growing though not sure if that means anything.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
