Re: Where in the heck is my Ammonia spike?

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.
