From my understanding, doesn't your cycle restart all over when uncured rock is added to a tank that is already cycling?

Depends on the size of the tank and how much lr is added. If you add 10 more lbs of uncured lr to a 150 gal tank that is in the process of cycling it won't matter much. 10 lbs in a tank less then 55 gal and it's going to add some time to the total cycle.

Key is just waiting till nh3/no2 is 0 no matter what size tank you have.


If you haven't figured it out yet I like to BOLD links :P
