must have a lot of die off from the LR.. where id you get it...
just take thing slow and it will be cycled in no time.
IMO you don't really need to test anything other then amm, nitrite and nitrates while cycling. ph is ok also.
Save your test kits for when you need them after the cycle.
I would not us any additives during the cycle, just let her rip and wait for it to finish.
Don't get me wrong, its great that your testing and its a good habit to get into after the cycle.

I believe he is cycling his tank and curing the rock at the same time. He`ll be OK.

Dr Fosters and Smiths curing guide. If you dont already have it since you bought it from them hehe

http://www.liveaquaria.com/general/g...ral_pagesid=59

Was thinking of doing the same thing as you are. cure n cycle at same time.

How did the LR look?.. was it kinda bland, lots of color, size's, etc.

Debateing what i want to do for live rock. a LFS has wet base live rock for $4.00 a lbs.

I really need to get this going hehe.. Have to paint, put in new outlet etc.
It will get done thou =)
