Start up question....

Ok it's been awhile since I started a tank........
I've started up a 110g with a 20g sump (will have Seachem Matrix, LR rubble, LS, chaeto, and skimmer)......I've added new water, new live sand (Caribsea), 30 lbs of cured LR and 40 lbs of base rock......just did a WT and I'm 0 for ammonia, nitrates and nitrites......do I dare and ammonia source or could it be cycled? I will test again in a couple of days to see if there is any die off....

You can always dose the tank to 2ppm ammonia and if its gone by tomorrow same time, then youre good to go.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
