Thanks Ibrahim, I am glad I got this fixture. Low price and a pretty decent light. Don't know if it will be what I need down the road if I go with alot of corals, but it's great for now.

Thanks Joy, lots of practice with my freshy tanks. I use mostly lace rock in those. Now one of my freshies is all driftwood and the other is lace rock.

One decision that I don't know about. Bought this when I got the live rock. My friend at the LFS swears by it. I have been dealing with him for years and trust him so am giving it a try. Poured it in this morning and will post some test results later tonight.

Instant cycling in a bottle is usually always a waste of money I have found. I have never seen that brand before so I don't know for sure if it works or not. When the tank is cycling is the time I usually spend looking for pest hitchhikers and figuring out what fish and invertebrates I want in my tank.

I am torn with the instant cycling, but huge public aquariums use it to start, and theyre adding loads of livestock at once, also run by people who have been doing this for yrs... But a lot of the products have bad reviews...

I used to be pretty skeptical about those types of things, but a lot of people have had great results from some. Not all are created equal though, which is why most people say they're no good when they don't really know. Hope this is one of the good ones!
