    Hey guys, I used BRS dry base rock without cycling it like a dumba** :doh: and now have high nitrates and detectable phosphates (Hannah checker). Would weekly water changes be enough to eventually overcome this? Or am I doomed to take out all of the rock and recycle it in a trashcan? Thank you!
