    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    OK you should have no nitrite value on a completely cycled tank. Did you mean nitrate?

    A nitrate level of 8 does not need an intervention at this time, just make sure we are talking nitrate not nitrites.

    poured all the flake foods in the cube at 2pm, when i got home at 9pm, it was a hell hole.
    Water was blood red, i couldnt see past 2 inch into the tank, ammonia just nuked everything in there, my coral beauty was about to die, but i quickly put him in bucket of fresh salt water, and this was yesterday, today his alive, but my corals didnt make it i dont think, no way to tell right now since i dont have lighting over
