I have started my 1st salt water aquarium. It is 90 gal
w/110 lbs of cured lr
(relocated from a 5 yr old aquarium) and live sand. I monitored my chems for a few weeks before adding anything and my water did not cycle. My lfs
said it might not due to amount and maturity of my lr
. I have since added 1 Orange & White Ocellaris, 1 Black & White Ocellaris, and 1 blue linckia.
I had some detritus break out and picked up some turbos, blue-legg hermits, and some nafarius to work on it. The turbos are plowing through it really well.
I have been using dip sticks for my chem test and have found they are not as acurate as I would be comfortable with. What "master kit" would any of you recommend?
I have ordered a refractometer because my hygrometer is always off from my lfs
Thanks for your help.
