Nitrite 10, 10, 10
Okay, cool, so the ammonia and nitrite did cycle through pretty quick. I'd still suggest adding in one more tsp and check your parameters again over the following 24 hours to see if your tank has indeed cycled then. It looks like you have a lot of live rock in your tank, so it may well be good to go
