Am i doing it right?
Hi I am new to salt water fish keeping. I have purchased a used 3x2x2 Tank with a weir, it has a sump which i have filled with small pieces of base rock its pump is a 3000lph or 790gph, it has a protein skimmer and i have put in 3 power head style pumps all pumping 1000 lph which i think is around 265gph. The lighting is a aqua one metal halide combo. Now this is where I'm getting mixed up...
I have had the tank full of water for 2 weeks, i used crushed coral sand about 4 inches deep, I put in my base rock about 40 kilos and then filled the aquarium with treated tape water i then added my salt (took me 3 days to get it right),
Last week i went and bought some semi-cured live Christmas island rock and placed it in the tank in between and on top of my base rock. So then i read that i need to put in a prawn (shrimp) to get it started so i went out and bought a raw Prawn (shrimp) and i could only find massive ones so i got one that was about 10-15cm long and washed it off and chucked it in. Have i done it right?
