Raise to the 82f range.

If you want to know for sure, dose with 100% ammonia to .5-1ppm and see if it comes down. Hard to tell if your in the midst of the cycle or not. One thing for sure is that if that rock was 100% cured then the bacteria is slowly dieing off since there would be no ammonia source. That may be the small readings you are getting and the lack of any appreciable nitrate bump.

Just a thought

What could explain the bacteria 'slowly dying off' ... if all the measurements (namely salt) are within the acceptable range?

Anyway to 'save' them ?

Anyhow, the measurements have gone down ... but I guess that's cuz I added some (RO) water as the level was getting a bit low for the filter. We'll see tomorrow ...
