my tank has been set up for about 2 and 1/2 months now and theer are some fish and live rock in. and this is the second itme the ammonia level spiked on me. i know it iwll once after it gets cycled the first time but the seconds one was kind of a suprise. well any input would help. i did a water change and that helped al ittle but i was wondering if there are and plants or special media i should use in my filters to help. well i hope someone can fill me in on some poeinter. because i want the tank to be perfect for my octo when i get him. by the way it is the 150 gallon octo tank on the gallerie page. also input on that pic wouldbe great to.
take it easy everyone

Did you loose any of your animals? It's good you did a water change. What type of filtration do you have? How often are you feeding and how much? Could still be going through the cycle as it's still relatively new. I would keep monitering the levels and possibly do another waterchange, but it could be it's still cycling. I am sure the experts will have more info for you!!! Good luck!!!
