Thanks for the input! I wasn't planning on doing a pwc
until I saw the ammonia reading of 8.0! 8O I checked out the articles section and found one about curing LR
that recommended a pwc
every 2 days. I put the LR
in the Rubbermaid last Tuesday with a Maxi-Jet 1200. I assumed that since the Fiji rock had been out of the previous owner's tank for at least a couple of months, it wouldn't have anything living on it anyway by now. Then I added the rubble out of 9 boxes of uncured Marshall rock and apparently it really kicked off the cycle. I haven't done any pwc
's yet, but have been topping off with RO
. I guess I will go ahead and add the rubble tonight. It doesn't matter much to me if this takes a long time because I don't even have my tank yet!
All I have is a stand, a tank for a sump, and the LR
, but I'm working on the rest.
