I've had my tank up and running for about a week now. My LR was pretty much cured when I bought it from the LFS. I added 15 lbs of LS to my DSB. So even with a very stinky dead shrimp in a cup thats decayed quite a bit I have not experienced any ammonia spikes or nitrites or any nitrate level. Tested water every other day. I just did a 10% water change and thinking about adding a fish. I also have some carbon wedged into my bubble traps and some Pura Phoslock to remove any phosphates from the LR curing. Also I've been using a product called Purple Up, anyone heard of this? The LFS swears by it for helping the Coraline algae to grow.
