I think that I may just fresh dip the first one and then QT all the rest of them
lol yes, no tangs!! Cycling is the worst part , hopefully it's done soon but it sounds like its almost there

This pic always cracks me up, I don't know why

Hahaha! That picture's hilarious I'm so ready for the cycle to be done! Thankfully I was away for a week in the beginning so I didn't have to see it Lately my 55g and my other FW have been taking my mind away from it, so I'm not too bad about... Until I get to the LFS, then I'm ready to buy ALL of the fish!

Also, I think for lighting, you could grow mushrooms and some other softies with these

The fish in the store makes me so jealous. I need like a 300g tank to keep everything I want. I'd really love a powder blue tang, dang those things are nice

Haha, for now I'll be happy with a black clown goby and a clown fish Although I love the look of the green chromis, so pretty

Those lights are great! I'll have to order some soon Mushrooms here I come!-yes they're my little SW addiction right now. Just wait until I actually get them

I just tested the tank and this is what I got:
0ppm
0ppm
Off the charts high!

One big water change to get the nitrates back down and then I think that I'm good

Thanks, and yeah the cycling process was pretty bad. I'm so happy to finally have something in there. I think that I'm going to pick up a clownfish tomorrow I just did one big PWC, so I'll check the parameters in 30 mins or so and let everything settle down. AHHH!!! So, happy!

Haha I love clownfish. They're one of the funniest fish. Just to warn you, they will be crazy. You might think it's dying at night, but that's how they sleep! Mine literally lays at the surface of the water at night haha

Thanks for telling me! I would have been freaked out if I saw one doing that. The last time I was at the LFS there was a really cute small one in the tank. He followed my sister EVERYWHERE, she's excited to go get him. And getting him tomorrow allows my grandma to come along too. Ah the happiness. I just have to get through volunteering first.
