Nope, your cycle is moving along as it should. You won't do a wc until both ammo and trite fall to 0, and then you'll probably want to do a few large ones to get the nitrates down to a safe level too

Hey all I'm at Myrtle Beach and while walking on the beach I found some black porous rock. Could I use this in my tank and eventually seed it as live rock. Obviously it would need to be cleaned well. I'll post a pic as soon as I can.

Ok so here is a rough pic of the type of stuff I found. The black rock on top is what I have the most of.. The other stuff you can see is just little tidbits I gathered along the way. I really liked the black rock so I grabbed tons from the surf. So can I use it and will it become Live?

So I checked my levels today. What do you guys thing. Looks like ammonia is down but shouldn't I be seeing more nitrates by now. Also here is a shot of my tank. What do you guys think?
