    I thought I would remove some of the stickies in the salt water section, and replace them with the below links to articles in our saltwater blog here.

    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    You might get better luck if you started your own thread to ask questions

    Something is certainly is not right with your test results. Your levels should not remain the same for that lenght of time. By now, you could have even cycled by accident !

    I would suggest starting a thread and provide the additional information:
    -where did your ammonia come from ?
    -did you cure your rocks before putting them in your tank ?
    -what test kit(s) are you using ?
    -did you read thought any of the links posted above ?

    Oh boy !!!

    Please read through the link above (the first post in this thread) about cycling a marine aquarium with live rocks and STOP adding a ammonia source.

    You are going to have to re-cure your live rocks now, or you will continue to have some water quality problems for a very long time. Keep up with very very large water changes every second day until your nitrates remain at 0ppm for at least a week.
