Ok, so does the "cycle" mysteriously just start when I add my LR
into the tank?
I just put the LR
(~80lbs from LiveAquaria) in my 46 Gal
last night, and already had 50 lbs of Sand (20lbs of LS
, 30 Non-LS
)... I have a Emperor 280 BioFilter running and have my Skimmer (Remora Pro) going, even if to just break it in. I have 2 MJ1200's moving the water arround and SG
was right at 1.024 and temp of 78-79ish when I checked before bed last night.
I don't have a raw shrimp (I don't eat anything that swims or comes out of water) to put in the tank and kinda feel stupid going to to the Grocery and buying a single raw shrimp.
I have the Basic Marine Test Kit (Seachem I think) and planned on running through them for the 1st time tonight... I guess I don't really know what the plan of action should be (you think I would have worked this out already, huh?).
Because I got the LR
On-line, and have some die-off from the 2nd Day Delivery I'm sure and I think this might be enough to get the cycle started, but I guess I'm not 100% sure.
of course told me to toss in a couple Damsels, but didn't know what the Experts here in AA suggest.
