So I've had the 10g pod tank up and running for about 2 weeks now. I got almost 20lbs of LR
and about 10lbs of base rock in there. I have live sand and added some cheato.
I have been testing since I set it up and keep getting ammonia at 1.0ppm but no nitrites yet. I assume the ammonia is from the rock die off, it was out of water for over half an hour and the rock wasn't super clean.
Shouldn't I have gotten trites by now? I've usually gone through mini cycles but never this long.
I'm so not a cycling expert so if anyone has any suggestions please share.
