just moved my tank yesterday, took out all the water except

1" over the sand bed.

 

the LR was in a bucket coved with the tanks water,

and a maxijet for circulation.

 

the whole operation took about 2 hours.

 

but today i noticed a more fishy/sea smell from the tank.

not much but more than normal.

 

took a test and found a Nitrite level of 2.0 ppm!

 

the tank is at the end of its cycling.

 

ammonia is 0, nitrate is fine.

salinity is 1.023 as allways

temp. is normal.

 

I have a 3" sandbed, with lots of bobbles.

 

I dont know if you could call it a DSB, but would the disturbance

of the sandbed course the Nitrite level?

 

I have no livestock at this moment.

 

20 gal high
