Ok so I got my filter working, cycle is underway ammonia was around 1.5ppm. Also the light came which is a ecoxotic par 38 21w 2000k bulb ow with 3 blues and 2 whites and so did boostled reef clamp. My plan is to order reef cleaners clean up crew up only snails and some chaeto for the filter next Friday and then two weeks after that hopefully cycle is fully complete and tank is getting some stability. My plan is to fill it with chalice corals, acans, high end zoas, some sps, and a bonded sexy shrimp pair. Would these shrimp work?
