Well, started the cycle today. That's a shrimp in a stocking on a veggie clip. I put some rocks in, going to put done with zoas or palys after the cycle so there will be more rock work. Got the 3" PVC in as well. Looks ugly now but will look ok after a bit when it colors up with coralline. I also have some free floating cheato now until I can get pretty dragons breath or something similar. Let me know what you all think or if anyone has suggestions.

Trying to program my LEDs. Suggestions as to what percentage they should be at? I know mantis shrimp can't have too much light or they get sick. I have orbit marine LEDs.

Are you doing any coral or just the macros? And I think the light thing is a myth, they prefer the dark but I don't think the light harms them.

I read that too much light can harm their shells and make them ill. But I plan in keeping corals. Probably just palys and zoas though.
