Hey, if you don't mind Tank I am going to post this in here to avoid spaming the board with a similar question.
I started my tank up three weeks ago and I had an ammonia and a nitrite spike within the first week. Right now ammonia and and nitite are zero and nitrates are average. I started the cycle using 50lbs of LR
in a 65gal tank, and while I have heard doing so can yeild an instant cycle I want to be sure before adding fish.
Will adding a shimp now to test hurt anything? I assume if my cycle is complete I won't see an ammonia spike since the bacteria will suck it up, and if not I know I didn't cycle. Does this make sense?
