Hey Nano-Reef! It's been a while, but I still lurk here from time to time. The 10 gallon nano that I started in 2015 is still running, but I've decided to finally start my 40 gallon with a tank that I bought in 2016. Having this giant, empty tank sitting in my living room was no bueno. It's currently cycling, and that's one of the reasons I decided to start this journal.....I have a question! I kickstarted my cycle using the dead table shrimp method about two weeks ago. I've watched my ammonia and nitrite levels rise and fall back to 0. My nitrates are now at around 20ppm. Soo...is my cycle over or nah? Two weeks seems kinda like a short time. I am starting my tank with dry rock and live sand (I went with live sand instead of dry sand since that was the only sand my LFS carried). Here's a picture of my very rustic aqua-scaping in case anyone is curious!
