Question 29 gal update by the Numbers! Hitchhikers!

The cycle numbers are significant.
Nitrite: 80
Nitrate: 10.0
Alkalinity: 200
PH: 8.2

Seen a few hitchhikers from the live rock. A Nassarius snail, 2 feather dusters which seem to have not survived the cycle, snail eggs attached to a side wall about 25-50 or so. I am not sure if the snail eggs can survive the amonia levels or not.

Unidentified: Something about 3-5 MM long and looks like a cream colored version of a land rolly poley only smaller. A clear strand about 1/2 mm in diameter with internal sections cream in color. No movement and I think to best describe it it looks like a small section say 20 mm long of star fish eggs but I am not sure. I know a star fish had laid eggs in the same tank the rock came out of.

At these cycle numbers I imagine the tank will be fully cycled when I return from vacation in 10 days. All comments welcomed.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
