So Nitrate went up and so did ammonia but no nitrites yet.... Is this normal for cycling? Day 2 of testing, day 3 of base rock and live rock, day 4 of sand and water.
ALSO!!!! Noticed a Brittle Seastar growing on one of the live rocks!!!! Awesome!!!
What should I do about the pH level?
when did u check the Ph? Apparently if the lights are off and u test before they come on the Ph will be a little lower. Check after they have been on for a while.
