Too slow. Put in more gold fish or mini koi to drum up the nitrates to 80ppm.

BB multiply faster at ph 7ish to 8 so yours is optimum that's why it cycled fast. another reason is u have huge water volume in comparison to your bioload.. i'll usually cycle the tank with the same amount of bioload as my final setup to be safe. cause if u add a considerable amount of fish now, the sudden increase in bioload will cause a mini cycle coz the existing amount of BB cannot cope. but if u're only adding 1 aro then shouldnt be any issue.

nice spacious new home for your lucky aro
