Fragged up the whole system this week ready to move everything out and redo the system. Resetting with a new build, the BIG REEF tank.

This week I'll be fragging up and moving most of the coral into my frag tank as I get ready to redo the system as the BIG REEF with new rock, sand, plumbing, the works! Lots of corals to move over! The 20 gallon is going to fill up quickly!

Nitrite coming down to 0.50 and below. Nitrate lowering from 5ppm to less than 3ppm. Phosphate is also coming down but very slightly due to some hair algae growth. No lights running to limit algae growth, I will do a water change and run the skimmer & lights once the nitrites are gone and nitrates are 0ppm. Almost there.

Cycle seems to be going very slowly. So I added a 100w heater to the tank and will try and raise the temp to 80F as that seems to speed things up.

Ammonia at 1.0 and rising slowly. So I added a piece of liverock from my 20 gallon to seed it and get the bacteria population going. I also put a powerhead right behind it to push flow passed the rock, not directly at it. This should get things moving. (in retrospect I wish I had held off on dosing the Microbacter7 until my ammonia started to rise/I add live rock to seed.

Still no noticeable signs of a cycle starting . . . . . patiently waiting. . . .

Day 12: The tank has not even begun to register ammonia. 8 cubes of mysis and ghost feeding pellets every day should show ammonia. So I have turned the skimmer off for the rest of the cycle. (I nearly emptied the skimmer cup back into the tank, but decided against it). I will keep ghost feeding and will see what happens. I should see ammonia in a few days, I hope.
