Can an emersed tank cycle?
So I've had my emersed setup running for just over 2 months now. I keep the water level below the substrate line, but there is still apparently enough water for snails to live and grow between the particles. I've spotted quite a few of them through the front glass, so there are probably many more that I can't see. I see a bunch of other little critters zooming around too. With all the snail poop and whatnot, is my tank cycled? I'm not sure because ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates all read 0; there should be some nitrates...
