Also you said yuo let it cycle for 2 weeks. How? What is the ammonia source?
I was told that initial 2 weeks was to condition and test the new tank (when I say new I mean never used before) and filters, bio balls, skimmer etc. then start the cycle with cured live rock I am now at the part where I add the rock but tested out of curiosity and the fact my tester turned up. I was surprised to see any ammonia in the tank unless it came from the live sand as I have no other source in the tank apart from my hand from time to time.
I will stick the rocks in on Sunday and then leave it a few days and test again to see of the process has started. If anyone has any advise or words of wisdom from experience I am happy to learn.
