I just want to make sure this is "normal"
We started cycling the 29 gallon biocube 4 weeks ago. The the ammonia spiked and went to 0 in 6 days. The Nitrite hasn't gone down at all the last 3 week and nitrate is just starting to go up. We have diatom growth on the sand and glass already and some green hair algae.
It's the first time cycling with live sand, base rock and shrimp. The other times it's been with LR
