After all the ammonia and nitrite spikes they are all zero now except nitrate at 20 does that mean my tank is done cycling? What do I need to do next before I start stocking? 50% waterchange?
I am using 2 canister filters as means for filtration. Do I need to give the filters a wash too? I am not using any skimmer as this is going to be a FOWLR
tank, no corals. Even if I do need to clean the filters do I only wash the foams and sponges but not the ceramic rings which should have beneficial bacterias on them? I think the sponges/foams must be very dirty due to the fact that I started running them since day one after I added sand, rocks and stuffs which caused a dust storm that took 1 day to clear up.
After all these can I then add fish? In which order will you suggest me adding my livestock? Those are the ones on my list:
1 Regal Tang
1 Yellow Tang
1 Ocellaris Clown
1 Naso Tang
5 Peppermint shrimps
2 Cleaner shrimps
30 Hermit crabs
My tank is a 132g 6 footer you can see this at my gallery. Thanks for the help in advance.
