tank finished cycle whoo-hoo

ok my tank has cycled i am pretty sure here are the params

Ammonia-o
nitrite-0
nitrate 2.5-5 p.p.m

here are my questions on friday i will be getting 10 lbs. of cured tonga rock
when i put it in will this cause a mini cycle,(3 inches of sand, CPRbakpakskimmer, whisper 30, 1- 80gph PH and a 100watt heater

if it does go through a mini cycle what do i add after that fish or clean up crew or at the same time. thank you all i am so glad its done i think.........

I would wait to add fish. Add the rock and wait a few days or even better a week. Then re-test the water. Just to be safe... then add one fish a week. Good luck!

2 weeks? All the better, sounds to me like you are being patient and on your way to a sucessful tank.

huh? tank warming, well six line when my tank took 8 o r9 weeks to cycle i think i can wait a few more weeks besides i want to savor these moments of relaxing by my tank not worrying wether the params are ok or the SG is right.

well about the adding a 1 fish a week i watn two clowns so would'nt it be better to add them baoth at the same time and keep close tabs on the tank or not?

Thats a pretty small tank, but you could do it. Are you planing to add two false perculas? If you get two small juveniles I think you would be ok. Just check the water a day or so after there added, just to make sure theres no ammonia poping up (just to be safe). Good luck with them
