Sorry about the tang, they are fickle little beasts. I think I read this was the first fish going in, I would be wary about a YT being the first inhabitant, they are known to be very territorial and aggressive to fish added after them- unless of course you go with bigger and more aggressive fish. Just my .02.

I was responding to redsea, but sorry to hear about your loss as well, 13 years is a long time.

Hi all, thanks for all the support. The tank has been sitting empty since the Tang died. I have been adding ammonia to keep the tank cycled however. I am now at the point where I am doing water changes to get the nitrates down from all the adding of ammonia. Once that is done I can begin stocking again.

Hey Autumn! That is indeed so true! I hope stocking day comes soon too, as I don't really want to keep on adding ammonia. It feels counterproductive to be doing these 30g water changes (as much as I can do at a time) and then add more ammonia to worsen the water. how long do you think it can go without dosing? I would do water changes quicker but the RODI is sooooo sloooowwwww, lol.

Thanks.

Hey guys, I have a quick question. So you know how I am doing tons of water changes to get the nitrate level down (I have done about 90 gallons so far over the past week or so and have barely noticed a difference )...how long do you think it is acceptable to not add ammonia to the tank? I just feel like I am taking steps backwards when I do it, as I am trying to get the nitrates down. Thanks.

EDIT: Oops, just realized I already basically posted this above...the question on ammonia, sorry! Been a crazy week I guess...I'm being very forgetful.

Are you cycling the tank? Is that why you are adding the amonia?
