This is my first ever tank.
Water parameters after day four
Nitrate 5 ppm
Used cured live rock and carib sea sand
So are these normal? When do i start seeing ammonia spike? How come there is nitrate i thought those come after nitrite spike or is 5 ppm normal? Should i add a fish yet? Its a 10 gal tank.
Lights on 5 hrs a day 75 blue 25 white
Koralia 240 gph
Also using tap with aqueon water conditioner for top off (should i go rodi or not?)
Input needed on how i should proceed thanks
