    Should my heater be on while cycling my saltwater tank?

    Hey there @albert and welcome to MASA!!!

    Yes, most defenitely. This is also a good time to play with the heater settings to get that temp perfect as well...

    Enjoy every moment of starting up, I myself is also now in the cycling phase. 10 days in already, and the gha looks like it's gonna be a problem...

    Nitrites need to be 0. It will kill inverts as it is very toxic to them. What is the parameters of your tank?
