    IMO, you should never use fish to cycle a marine tank, it is simply not necessary. If you have sufficient live rock in your system, there will be a certain amount of die-off and that alone will create the ammonia needed to cycle the tank.

    How do you have the tank setup and what have you been doing with it?

    2 things jump out to me right away. First, you will want to remove the bioballs. While they are helpful in freshwater tanks, they can cause problems in SW tanks. The carbon is also not necessary at this time. Second thing I see is that you don't have nearly enough live rock.

    Finally, what kind of test kit are you using? Almost sounds like test strips.

    It probably wouldn't be a bad idea, and then if you can afford it, I'd add another 10kg of live rock.
