So I am currently a week in on my cycle. I have 20lbs of live sand, 8 lbs of dead rock that I am currently curing in my tank, and ~2 lbs of live rock in the tank as well. I have tested the tank a couple times a week and the ammonia has risen to above 10ppm, it turned blue, then i did a water change to lower it. Since everything was crazy off the chart. I then tested it today, 3 days after a w/c, and the ammonia is at 1-2 ppm and the nitrite/nitrate is off the chart. Basically I just want to know if this is on the right track, or if I need to do another w/c in order to lower everything. I know it is going to take some time, I have nothing planned with this tank for another 3-5 months anyways.
