I'm new to sw
and would appreciate some feedback on my test results. I'm used to cycling fw
tanks so have the basic knowledge although these results have confused me a bit. I'm using NT labs test kit (not sure how good they are). My tank has been running exactly one week and I used all live rock (14 kgs) and sand. LR
was out of water less than an hour. Results as follows:
14th- filled tank.
15th- ammonia - 0
17th- ammonia. 0
21st- ammonia. 0
Now in a week I am a little unsure on 1. How come No3
is so high on day 2?
2. How come No3
has reduced over the week when I have done no water changes and am only running carbon?
3. Why no ammonia from die off?
4. Has the basic cycle finished due to LR
being so established?
5. Have I just got a rubbish test kit!
Any other help and suggestions would be great.
Oh yeah.... Nice to meet you all!
