taging along awsome have you thaught about piping the heatsink water through a heat exchanger in the sump for heating the tank you could probably need a couple of valves to controle the flow between the outside exchanger and the one in the tank so as to not over heat it but it could save on the heating bill for the system

I will be adding Cardinals first.

My ammonia is 0... I made 2 of my shrimp disintegrate so I'm thinking it will be higher tonight.

Make sure you get lots of flow so chunks don't get caught somewhere and make your cycle excessively long.

So now the results are:

Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrate 0
PH 8.1-8.3
KH 80
Calcium 360
Salinity/SG 1.0255

I will be adding one prawn every 2 days till I order my fish... 5 days before my fish are supposed to come I will add 5 prawns and take them out the night before my fish arrive.

Jimbo7... my cycle is over... even though the chunks are still hanging around

You are not going to add fish til sept. 6 right? I told my 3 yo (about to be 4 on sept 6) that you were adding fish for his b-day. :p

I think I can trick him. just make sure you let me know before you post pictures cause he follows this thread.

when he gets home from school he says "daddy, can we see the giant fish tank." and then I must read every post to him
