I am trying to figure out how to cycle our 55 gal
I have 30 lbs of live rock in it and 40 pounds of live sand in it. My tank has been running for 7 days now with many critters running around (from the LR
). My salinity level is between 1.022 and 1.024 and temp is always at 78. I have read many suggestions about cycling with damsels and cycling with raw shrimp, however, the live sand that I put in had said on the package that there is "no waiting". It is natures ocean brand and on its website it says that there is no need to wait to put in fish with this sort of sand. I am really confused with this. Am I ready to put in fish yet?? How long do I need to wait....I thought LR
was supposed to speed up the cycling process.
Any help with this would be wonderful....again I am very confused and I just need to know what my next step in this whole process is.
