Idk how but the RO water I got to fill my tank has a lot of ammonia in it... I think it's from the pump I used to get it in my tank from outside even though I cleaned it very well... Some grass and stuff get in there but I guess this it good for now, my bacteria can handle this amount in 24hours with me topping off 2times a day... Looks like I will be adding fish Monday hopefully and my cycle will surly not slowdown if I can't

My in tank stats:
Amm: 0.25
Nitrite:0.00
Nitrate: 40ppm

When I normally buy this water it is all 0's so I am confident after I dump that nasty stuff the new water I buy will be all 0's as well... And I think this proves the rock is already cycled just like my local fish store said?

I teste the water every time I get it and have never had any nitrates so I'm pretty sure that's from the bio.

Was the rock live? Or base rock?
