Totally agree with 2Shi.... it ALWAYS takes a few days if not a week. Run the tests to see if it can handle a load of ammonia.
  • BTW, how long did it take you to drive across the country?
  • You kept the gravel saturated the ENTIRE time? What type of substrate is this?
  • What make/model is your filter & what did you do with your filter media during the trip?
