Looks great except on the right side that piece resting on the glass isn't such a good idea. Try and leave 2" all around for cleaning and to avoid scratches

Nice rockwork man. But since your nitrite is so high the cycle isn't done yet but your very close since your nitrate is rising and have low ammonia. What are you planning to put in? And by the way during the cycle don't keep your lights on unless your working on it or somthing, you don't want a green hair algae outbreak. It's a pain to get rid of!

I didn't think it would even be close to cycling since its only been up 3 days. I'm surprised I have any nitrate at all but i'm assuming is from the live rock. The raw shrimp has only been in there for one day.

Thanks for the tip about the lights. I just purchased a 10k bulb instead of the 50/50 I had in there.

Yeah no problem, saving alot of headache but when your cycle is done to a major water change to take trates down because algae feeds on that stuff keep doing it till your trates are like 2 over a period of a few days. 10k bulbs are good. Under my reef I have 1 10k bulb 2atinic and 1 purple. That what came with mine but I'm looking to replace soon since they are 8 months old. The purple is a neat addition.
