Finished my first change, and all went well. I think in the future i will be doing ten gallons to extend the times of water changes. Is the increase of Nitrates the main indicator of when to change water. How often should i test now, i know i should test before and after adding fish, but once i am stocked, how often should i test.



50 Gallon Oceanic: 2 maxijet 1200's, 2 150 watt visitherm heaters, BakPak II Skimmer with PS & BT, Coralife Lunar 2X65 watt Power Compacts

Filtration: 50lbs LR.com, 60lbs sand

Swimmers: 2 O. Clowns, Yellow Watchman, Firefish, Yellow Tang, Dottyback.

Clean-Up: Several snail & hermits, Skunk Cleaner, 2 Peps.

Corals: 2 zoo colonies, yellow polyps, star polyps
