I set up a 12 gallon holding tank on Sunday. I checked levels today and my Ammonia is at 1 my Nitrite and Nitrate are at 0 so far. My Alk is at 2.97, my PH is 8.2, SG is 1.026 and my temp is 76. I have about 5-7lbs of live rock in the tank. I have never kept track of cycling with test kits before. I would just wait a month before putting anything in the tank since I didn't have tests to check the levels... Those were my extreme newbie days . Is there any timeline I am looking at for the cycle in a 12 gallon?? I know having live rock in the tank will help a little. Anything else I could do to help the cycle?? Thanks for any help!!
