I have a 30 gallon saltwater tank that I setup about 2-3 weeks ago. In the beginning I added Fritz-Zyme #9 after a couple of days, then about a week ago I added about 4 pounds of live rock and even more recently about the same of live sand.
Two or three days ago the ammonia and nitrite readings were literally off the chart, yesterday the ammonia read at .5 nitrite at 1 .. today ammonia is at .25 and nitrite is still at 1.
The ammonia has dropped dramatically, is that normal? I have noticed a brown "tint" to everything, and my lr
is really live, could it be coming to the end of the cycle or did I mess up along the line?
