Ok so you have at least 40 pounds of live rocks in the tank with a powerhead or circulation pump moving the water. No HOB
or canister filters. You didn't have a heater? Get one please.
Try to get all your base and live rocks now. This is the best time for curing them, so you don't even need the ammonia. The dead stuff coming off the rocks will supply you with ammonia. Do water changes if ammonia gets really high. IMHO
ammonia should never be above 3ppm.
