Nitrates Before Ammonia
Hey everyone, so my 90g reef has been set up for about a week now and I've been testing the water every other day. Today, I tested Ammonia, then Nitrites, then Nitrates... I have yet to see any ammonia or nitrite reading, but my Nitrates read about 25-30 ppm...
Since this tank is new, I am curing the LR in the tank. Is this whats causing the Nitrates to appear first? I assume it should cause ammonia, as its what I have read.. should I be worried about the nitrates being there first?
