The rock was uncured, but had been in the LFS
for a few weeks in their holding tank which is approx. 400 gallons. Under the advice of the LFS
guy, I cycled my tank with the LR
. I brushed the rock and rinsed in SW
before adding it to the tank. I got recordings as high as 2.0 Ammo and 5.0 Nitrite during the cycle, then a drop to zero. After doing a 30% water change and a few days of stable readings, I added the Clowns. Then the white strings came. I thought at first some worm, but they kept appearing in the water. Then more and more and more. I'm stumped.
