i bought 18 lbs of new fiji LR
from Dr.fostersmth.com and i shipped it over night. yes it alot of die off and i put a few peices at a time in a 5gallon bucket with fresh saltwater and used a brush to try to get most of the die off. after i done that i added all the LR
to the tank with my other LR
and the cycling journey began. its been over or about a week now and ammo is off my charts on the test kit. and nitrites are still at 0.
i see alot of die off on the new LR
the hermits are going as fast as there little legs can go. lol. i dont think they slept for days lol i do also have snails but the glass is being coverd in alage. i only have light on for about 2hrs now. to help out with that.
does that help any?
