I'm almost sure it's cycled, the guy at the LFS told my thoses live rocks were pricy because they're already cycled (7$/pounds). I've did the dead shrimp tricks for 16hrs, no ammonia/trites, but the waster smell nasty.


I've done my aquascape so I can clean my rear glass with a sponge:

I've think about everything but not about corals placements... Du you think I can make something gorgeous with this arrangement ?

So you just don't clean behind your rock structure ? And the glass too ? Must be nasty?

I don't clean back there much. I do try to get the regular algae as much as I can, I just leave the coraline (on the back glass). I like the look of it kinda, but scrape the rest.

It's your phone because I see them. I used Hostingpics. I did a 20% WC, now ph is at 8.2, look perfect for introducing my FIRST two sw fishs. I found somebody selling me 2 clownfish for 20$ each. They look heatly, I saw them, they fed them in front of me, they dynamics, perfects !

I already love them. I go pay them in 1 hrs

I installed the skimmer. The only thing it do is noise, bubbles... Normal for the first few days ?

Why not ask them to take it out? Whenever i catch a fish from my tank i set the net in the tank for 30 minutes to make make them be used to it and then i feed them, when they come up to feed, i swoop up and catch them, with the net of course
