Yesterday, I went to Lim Chu Kang with a buddy “F” at work, and came away with some 27kgs of Live Rocks for the new tank. I don’t think its gonna be enough, but it should suffice for now.
The rocks are now at home curing in 3 different pails and a styrofoam box.
I just did an amonia test on the water in the styrofoam box, and its spiked to 2mg/l. This should come down again back to zero by the next 3 to 5 days as the bacteria builds up and breaks down the amonia to Nitrite before finally breaking it down to Nitrate. Once Amonia and Nitrite is zero, the rocks are cycled. 🙂
