It was my first SW tank and yes I was extremely cautious, but in the end it all paid off!

Good move, I don't think I could of held out that long. 2 Months max unless of course it wasn't cycled by then.

yeah i would have had fish and stuff in there long befor 4 months. but your tank will probably be more healthy than some tanks.

had a small algae problem for a little while but got rid of it. Other than that I have had no problems with it. I topoffs ever couple of days and once a month change about 2-3 gallons of water and it has worked like a charm. Oh its a 29 gallon reef.

You should probably do a 4-5g water change every 2-3 weeks. I have a 29g and thats what Ive been doing. Seems like you are doing alright though for the most part. Just try to avoid future issues.
