Everything seems good so far, I ordered a MJ1200 to replace the return pump as the MJ900 I got with the tank is pretty old and making noises, I also wanted to have a bit more circulation through the filter area. My temp seems to stay around 76 degrees, should I add a small heater in one of the back chambers? What temp. do you all hold your tanks around?

ok I will see about a small heater to keep it in that 78 area, mine is more in the 75/76 area right now. I keep my condo at 74 so that is probably why. Recommend any brand or type? There are soo many out there lol

ok thanx, ordering this week, I replaced my MJ900 with a MJ1200 and the difference is amazing, probably becuz the old one was beat up. Now I have good flow into the media basket and back area. My nitrites are slowly picking up , this is a normal part of the cycle correct?

Seems the MJ1200 and light cycle are keeping my tank around 79 so I might not get that heater just yet, This morning I woke up to small red and orange looking dots over everything, im guessing they are diatoms, or some sort of bacteria growing. Cycle seems to be going smoothly, my nitrites are really high now and nitrates climbing
