I am wondering about my cycle ... since I established biological filtration using cured live rock bought from my local LFS
, will my tank actually go through a true cycle?
recommended I feed the tank with pinch size portions of fish food (they gave me a specific kind and specific amount per day) versus using a raw shrimp as my ammonia source. In a matter of days, I saw a small increase in ammonia and nitrites and both now register zero. My nitrates are just above the bottom yellow on the API comparison card.
So has my cycle possibly stalled or could it have cycled that quickly (live rock has been in 13 days but I only started providing an ammonia source 6 days ago).
