Look at your LR scott, really really look. There should be tiny little flea looking creatures on it. My 55g has got thousands right now everywhere. All over the glass etc.. I moved about 10 lbs out of that tank and moved it into the cube.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

There are also different types of pods, amphipods, Copepods, and a few others. Some are good and others are bad. The ones I named are common and good. They are eaten by many fish including gobies and mandarin dragonets, a fish that eats it as it's staple food.

Well, she has a better chance since she didn't tackle the ups man. Okay, yeah, I know, the joke is getting old.

Well it's a new day and new stuff to do! The cube is pretty much crystal clear and looks pretty good now.

I am however vexed by what to do now. I tested the water and came up with 0 across the board. Last few times i did a tank move or setup I had a cycle start within the first day. I've always seen at least a hint of ammonia. This time nothing.

In addition to the pods I found a darn aiptasia on my purple piece of rock. :-(

So when can I add CUC or a shrimp? Will I have any cycle or did the rocks already cycle in the bucket I had them in for a week? if you guys think i should start a new thread I will, just stumped on this one.

Thanks!!

Why not add an ammonia source and then test tomorrow for ammonia and see if it's gone
