to keep up with that size bio-load. 66lbs in a 56g tank IMO
is not enough LR
. I have somewhere around 200#s between the main tank and my sumps. I would go ahead and do a PWC
again now to help reduce the ammonia.
And the tank should be stable before you add a lot of critters to it.
I agree. I only have 4 fish in my 55g, and I have ~85lbs of LR
in my tank, along with 80lbs of LS
, a Canister filter rated for 125g tank, and a sump rated for a 125g tank.
Do you have a skimmer? (I haven't looked at your info), If not you will want to think about one, ESPECIALLY if you are going to maintain that kind of bioload.
As Ziggy said, You shouldn't have began adding anything untill your system was stable, Once it is stable and you begin to add, you should only add 1-2 items at a time and let the system catch up for a few weeks. If you have alot of diatom algae that is 1 sign your system isn't keeping up.
