34 gallon sw start up

Hi I just recently bought a Red Sea 130d max I put water and live rock in the tank last Thursday. I haven't seen any spikes in the ammonia, nitrite, or nitrate yet. My question is how long does it generally take to start seeing these spikes? I also see a bunch of these little microscopic flee looking things running around the rock.

Welcome.


Start a thread in the saltwater section. You'll get more views there. Those things sound like Copepods but I think it's too soon, your tank is just starting right? Maybe they hitched a ride on your rocks.
