Everything is brand new, running a Coralife 10,000 K
24 watt and a Coralife 10,000 K
24 Watt dual tube light bulb. I run them for probably around 10 hours a day. At night there are these cool LED
moon lights built in.. pretty neat I must say.
I was planning on replacing the bio-balls but I wanted to do it slowly as the tank just finished cycling. I took some out and put in the ceramic rings but there are a few balls left. Eventually I was planning to phase them out.
I am running a pouch of AC
which is also fairly new (less than two weeks old probably), it does have an eclipse brand style insert that I assume also has AC
that has been in the tank throughout cycling/etc, it is probably 3 weeks old. The tank is one of those Oceanic bio-cube systems so everything is built in.
Water Parameters were just tested five minutes ago.
The nitrites are still high obviously but I assume they will come down with time. I am testing with an Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Saltwater Master Test Kit.
