Yeah my tank is cycled, PLUS just a several days ago I went and got another lb of LR
plus the guy threw in an extra .5 lb for free and I got about 75-100 free Astrea Starfish and a small free peice of coral that the guy says is dead but he was hookin me up so much I'll bet he said that on purpose and threw it off the plug onto the ground 'cause he knew I would pick it up, so who knows, it looked alive to me... then I also got a nesarrius(sp?) snail for my sand-bed and he threw in a free random snail and two other white Starfish, idk what kind they are but they are still small but I bet they get a lot bigger
He also tested my tank water and said the salinity is pretty high but not crazy so I've already changed some water, and he tested my filtered tap water and said it was a bit dirty but not enough not to use it to top off my tank, I'm gonna get a new filter for it soon so I'll bet that takes care of the little bit of dirtiness. I ALSO got a new light bulb, a 15watt that I put in my lamp, its a bit dim for me but it will work for now till I get my Light strip and a couple of better bulbs, and the peice of coral is looking like it's doing ok so i think its alive.
So, my tank is well and happy now! My LFS
guy also gave me a free peice of rock to put in so my hermies can get out of the water for a bit, apparently they like to do that. Thanks for all your help guys!!! If there is anything else PLEASE let me know!!!
