How this for setup and how long till fish?

Hi all,

I have a 75gal FO with 80lbs of live sand, 50lbs of live rock,2 aquaclear 500s. One with foam insert and a bag of BIO cubes, the other with foam and charcoal. Also 2 titanium heaters running at 78degrees, and I use RO water.

How long till the cycle is over? The nitrites are way up. How long till they drop? What else can I do to help?

thanks

What kind, and where did you get your LR/LS...this plays a major role. The stuff from www.liverocks.com took me about 2 weeks until I was all 0, but LFS stuff can take twice that easily, if not more.

And there is nothing you can do...welcome to the waiting game.

Oh yeah:

not always true, actually took me less than 2 weeks with well-cured lfs rock...

reason? less die-off than lr.com due to length of shipping
