Its ok Boulder, dont you worry because its all helpful to me!
Anyways, I wanted to provide an update. So far, I have 30lbs of LR
in the tank, the pH is 7.8-8.0, Ammonia is 0, Nitrite is 0, Nitrate is ~20, SG
is 1.022. I have had the tank set up with LR
for 2 and a half weeks now. How is it going? I see plenty of life in there that I believe came from the LR
. I found at least 2-3 snails, a small tiny clam, some tube worms, and 2 anemones (all the creatures ive seen so far are very very small). How is it going? Do you think my tank has cycled since i am showing nitrates?
