180 day 10 cycle update


New member
So Far not a whole lot happening, 10 days in, pH has sat between 8.2 and 8.0, ammonia has climbed and seemingly leveled out between 1-2ppm. No nitrites to report.

Hoping to see nitrites soon, that should be a nice little surprise but rocks seemingly have no changes, I see no signs of any growth on them.
