I saw that and I liked it very much
Was thinking about unpacking one, but I have major headaches for the last 3 days and don't wanna lift anything or else it'll get worse (left work early tonight too)

As for the refugium: I got 3 different algae in there (scroll, graciella an cheato) will also buy ulva so I can grow it for the tang.
The refugium is one part of the 55g sump. Thing it's like 24 inches long, almost half of my sump

Yes, have refugium light on when DT lights are off. This way ur pH stays stable.

Yeah, I get migraines too: they are the worse!!! Can't even go to the bathroom with migraines have to crawl LOL
women are more prone to them, goes it's due to our hormone cycle...
At least with this headache I can still read

Sorry, this is like so off topic (again)

No, stupid nitrites are still there hate them by now. But my amo is going down fast, so I'm partially happy

There is no silence in our house either. It's either the dogs, my bf, or the stupid phone. Also the neighbors kids don't know how to keep it down.

Also terrible with migraines is light.
In general anything that stimulates your senses... Even smells.

Well, it's still nice to not be alone in the house. My bf tries to help as much as he can (Which isn't much but better than nothing)

And yes, do have LR from my 30g in there AND from my LFS. guess it's just part of the waiting game. I just keep on telling myself that the longer it takes the better it will be LOL

The whole point of fishless cycling is that all the stats can go wild without killing anything. I wouldn't do a water change, just let it go it's course
