Saltwater Fiji live rock

Hey guys I have about 30lbs of Fiji live

rock that has been cured, how long should I wait before adding any fish or corals? All my levels came out perfect today and the tank looks crystal clear! .

Did you use anything besides rock die off as an ammonia source to cycle the tank? What were the highest ammonia levels you saw?

Nope that was actually all that I used! It worked perfectly And I just tested the ammonia levels, as well as nitrate, nitrite, salinity, and ph and everything came back ok nothing too high or low all just say safe

You may want to get some pure ammonia, no cleaning grade stuff, and dose the tank to 1ppm. If it is eliminated overnight the tank is cycled. I can't say for sure that your tank is cycled at this point. How big is the tank?

It's a 55 gallon tank and as of right now I'm addicted too! Lol I have a protein skimmer, marineland canister filter, a reactor that I put Nitrate media in, a UV light skimmer, as well as a mainland double wheel bio filter, I'm adding a 20 gallon sump/ref. Though

Can too many filters be a bad thing for your tank ?
