Well, tomorrow is the big day! The tank will be drilled tomorrow night at the reef club meeting.
I plan on painting the back glass on Sunday and hopefully adding water on Monday!
Now, I have been thinking of the next steps. I usually just use live rock and have no cycle but with this tank i was thinking of just using the base rock. The 100lbs or so of Live rock I still have in a garbage can of saltwater will be for the 60g. I was thinking of trying the "dr tims" stuff.... I know it is hit or miss but I havent tried it yet so it might be a viable option.
I also will not be stocking this one with any large fish, just small ones and corals so even if it gives me a "light" cycle the added bioload of the small fish being added should allow the small amount of beneficial bacteria to catch up to the bioload. This is what i am figuring anyways. lol
Also, since all the coral I have left is in a 10g tank doing so so I want to get them into this tank asap and the coral doesnt really have a bioload so I am hoping to add them in as soon as the tank stabilizes.
Anyone have any good things to say about dr tims? I am very cynical about these miracle additives but thought I'd give it a shot.
