I personally think a set up like that will not take near 8 months to see some benefit for a complete nitrogen cycle to occur, especially in the abscence of livestock. Anoxic zones created by the LR
should begin the process quite quickly. Coupled with the LS
it should end up being a very sound bio filter.
