If after 24 hrs ammo was 1.5, dose back to 4 ppm and check again in 24 hrs. That's how it goes in fw, but I'm 95% sure it's the same for sw

You could just have a mini and be done... Let it ride, don't add anything. That's how I did my 60g, but with LR from 150g.

Any nitrites yet? With the ammo converting so fast, I'd think there should be some nitrites. Or do they not even apply in sw lol? If you got some nitrites, I'd think you'd be cycled pretty soon.

Should go to trates, then trites. But if trites are high, do a pwc, about 30%, check tomorrow.

You sure? The nitrogen cycle is Ammonia->Nitrite->Nitrate

I guess with the all seeded media you might just skip over the nitrites and start getting nitrates.
