Can you tell he isn't married

The smell will go away with time... Maybe you could air out the room in the early morning?

I have a question abouat my current cycle.

I just did a quick test on the water, and my amonia is over .8 now i didnt want to do a water change during cycle as i have heard it slows the process down.

Is the level of amonia normal? Or should I infact do a pwc to take some of the amonia out?

I am curing with LR.com rocks and a dead shrimp. I have also dumped in some cc in panty hose from an established tank.

TIA
