Hi All! I have been trolling this site for a few months now and after a ton of research here and other sites, I decided to finally start a FOWLR
set up. I set up a 29 gallon tank with 30lbs of live rock last friday 3.1.09. I set up the tank in the morning and I tested the water that night.
On 3.3.09 I tested again
I added a little flake food to see if I would get a ammonia spike.
Finally last night I tested again:
So my levels pretty much have not changed. I am going to pick up a different test kit today and see if anything changes, if all is the same I will throw a raw shrimp in there and see if I get a spike in ammonia.
My question is, is this a good plan? If i dont see a big spke can I assume the tank is just about cycled and just wait till ammonia and nitrite drops to Zero?
I will aslo post some pictures soon!
Sorry for the long post.
