Fishless Cycle - Live Rock and Sand
I'm new on this hobby. I have bought my reef tank few days ago and I have already started the cycle, I guess. I have live rock and live sand. I was told I should add fish food daily to increase the ammonia to start the cycle. However, from day 1 my ammonia levels are not high enough I assume. Its levels is right now 0.004ppm.
How can I increase it? I have read that some people add ammonia using cleaning products. Other people keep adding fish food. However, I have always seen everyone with levels around 4.0ppm as start point for the cycle.
Can anyone help me please? I need some advice.
