Okay all...well.. HARA: Ummm... too late on the crabs... I added them two days ago and the nitrite was about .4-.5Ppm ... I swear that this morning it was down to .1-.2 Ppm.... Weird... I can wait on the water change...no problem...

Today I'm also getting my water tested at the LFS... they do it for free, as a second opinion.

All is well now... I just cleaned the tank of dust and debris, adjusted the skimmer, and set back and watched...

NOW: Lighting... How long for the 10,000K and for the Actinics?

I do 12hr for actinic and 10 for my daylight. I use the new 20,000k Coralife bulbs.

My Nitrites are now Non-Existent. How long before I should do a water change and how much should I change?

This is a great thread! I'm seriously thinking about getting into a LR Reef Tank and of all the threads I've been following, this one seems to cover it all. Way to go guys.

I'll be back here once I have the tank, LR and equipment.

I would do a 20% water change and then let it sit for another week and test it, then if all looks good, I would start slowly stocking fish...maybe 1 per week or two, testing to make sure the Nitrites stay at 0. Now your are at the fun part..hmmmm what to choose...

well, That works out good... I am going on vacation for about 5 days so, I can change out the water now and test when I come back... I plan to stock even slower - 1 per 3 weeks or 1 per month. When I get back I will setup the quarantine tank and put a deposit on two Ocellaris Clowns.

Hey, Timbo2,

I'll still be here. I just won't have anything "useful" to say until I start setting up and stocking a tank. Then I'll probably have so many goofy questions, you guys are going to wish I didn't find your forum!
