+2 with convict. I would deffinately try to take the corals and fish back to the store. Maybe you can keep them and just have then hold it all for you until your cycle us done. That's what I would go for. You can't rush in this hobby! I think most learn the hard way. I would definitely get some cured live rock ASAP to help out.

I would try a bottled bacteria even though it probably wont do anything, also along with twice the dose of prime. A friend of mine set up a 10 gal with an anemone and 3 fish on day one and I had to save it all I could do was try using prime and the bacteria and she didn't lose anything, but she may have just got lucky.

Ok im trying to figure out gow long it takes for bacteria to form. Referencing from day one till now is 5 days worth of water circulation in ny canister(55g capacity filter by marineland). Should i add a plant nano tank and have water exchanged? How do i control the pumps so that they are taking water in and back at the same exact rate? I dont know the logic of where the excess is supposed to go if there is a deficit of pump rate. Please clarify! Thanks!

Yeah, unfortunately, that's probably not the last dead thing you'll find in your tank before the cycle completes.

I will get the patented bio bacteria stuff now, that should make probability lesser right? Or is it a waste of money at this point? I see miniman grey and green algae in my tank, the emerald crabs are feasting on it. Good thing?

Is bio bacteria waste of money at this point?
