So I'm quickly learning everyone is very opinionated in this hobby!
Over the period of the last few weeks my tank has been cycling and I have been testing water parameters most every day. As I tested the water I saw the ammonia and nitrite increase (however minimal) and now nitrate has risen from 5ppm to 10ppm over the last 3 days - - and I also have had my local LFS
testing my water regularly as well. They confirmed what I thought and that with the volume of cured live rock I started with that the cycle was minimal and fast.
However, today I stopped at another local LFS
and there they tell me "no way, no how" the tank cycled that fast and that I can expect a huge algae bloom and a period of 60-90 days before the cycle is complete.
Anyone have an opinion
