Cycling????

Hi Guys.. I've been cycling my tank for 4 weeks now, the ammonia is 0 the nitrites and nitrates are very high.. The thing is Algea, everyone says algea and all kinds of weird thing happen while the rock is cycling, I have no fish in the tank, so it doesn't matter if it's ugly, but should I just let it go through the process and let it fix itself?????

I think so. Maybe add some of the cleanup crew when the tank is finished?

Ya, let it run. If your ammonia is 0 then you're about 1/2 way to being done. Once your nitrites are 0 do a water change and you'll be ready for stocking. Keep your lights off and the algae will slow down. Algae is going to happen as the tank matures so don't sweat it.
