    I am curious how far into the water cycle I am.. I only have a small piece of live rock and would like to add more, if I do that will the tank need to cycle again?

    Nirate- 2.0
    Nitrite- 0.5
    Ammonia- 0

    Hi and welcome to Living Reefs!

    When you reach 0 on nitrites you should be at the end of the cycle. If you add live rock you shouldn't get a cycle a spike. If you are adding dry rock it may spike a little depending on how much die off is on the rock. I would go ahead and get some more rock in there.
