    I've been studying this hobby for 12+ months before ever getting the tank wet, and after searching for all the threads about trace ammonia after cycling, I never once saw this. So is it just me? 8 weeks into the cycle I've got A/N/N at 0.25/0/25 - ammonia never got lower. Took a sample to the...

I have never cycled a tank with cured LR...
