my 28 gallon fish only build

Starting to cycle a 28 gallon fish only tank. Notice the shrimp in the backround. Ammonia is really high.

Looks good but you need way more rock than that.

Be careful with the shrimp..it adds other things like proteins. I am making the assumption that rock is live rock. Once you have a few more pieces, I would remove the shrimp...the live rock will provide the ammonia source.

You don't have to have live rock in a fish only tank do you?

You do not need as much. It really helps with filtration so it cannot hurt

Just so you know a FOWLR is just a reef with no corals . Is that a 28g jbj nano? If so you could grow mushrooms, palythoas under that lighting no problem whatsoever. I had some hitchhiker clove polyps in my cycling tank that survived and covered the entire rock.

Just telling ya . But yea, even if you add no corals at least create a table top sort of rock work so that the fish can hide and feel more secure. Also, having a decent amount of rock ensures you will never have problems with ammonia.

Looking good. Seriously consider adding some palys or mushrooms or cloves, that lighting can easily support them.
