For the record, I waited 6 long weeks!!! for my tank to cycle. An oh-so-long 6 weeks, too, as this was my first experience with SW
. I could not WAIT for my first fish; and she is with me today, 8 months later, a beautiful Longnose Hawkfish, Ms Hawkins.
(And, I highly recommend this fish to anyone new to SWF. The mortality rate for this fish is very low, and the largest reason (by percentages) one would loose her or his LN Hawkfish is due to an open tank. Ms Hawkins will eat from my fingers, and she is the FIRST at the dinner table each meal. AND... she just loves my cooking!!! =] .)
It's worth the wait, Hara!!!
