Not to shabby for only a week. Like any other cycle the nitrates will be really high mine were 80-100ppm for a good portion of it...Very nerve wrecking lol. Good luck im only a few months into my first saltwater myself i cant tell you how awesome it has been. This site has been a life saver for me on multiple occasions USE IT :happy:
