As posted before, this is my first try @ salt. I have a few questions I'm sure you have heard a million times, but please bare with me. My info is as follows.
- 45 gallon with 60 lbs LS and 55 lbs uncured LR
- Marineland Biowheel 350
- Marineland 1140 300GPH powerhead
- Whisper heater
My tank has been running for 4 days now, and here are the test results as of this afternoon.
- PH = 7.8
- Ammo = .50
- Trite = 1.0
- Trate = 20 PPM
- SG = .020 @ 78 F
Here is the question. I know my PH is a tad low, but the Ammo and Trites have remained the same. No rise or "spike" yet that I can tell. The Trates showed up today. Is my tank in fact "cycling"? What should I do to maintain my PH? I have been testing everyday, and would have thought I would see a change by now. I am using API saltwater master test kit. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.
