Billy, you are right, I am thinking of amenome cycling!
I would use RO
water for sure! If you dont have an RO
system, you could use distilled.
I would give up my UV
filter and all my fish if someone could take me back in time and tell me the first things I needed were a sump and skimmer. I swear to God that skimmers really are the best filtration for a tank. I fought Cyano
for a long time (in fact I am winning the battle right now!!!) and have found the most helpful item I was able to purchase in this fight was a skimmer. I love that stupid, expensive thing!
Are you on the winning end of the battle with cyano
right now? If not, read this link, its written by me. http://www.aquariumadvice.com/viewtopic.php?t=46295
