My New 29 Gallon Oceanic Biocube

Ok so I deicided to sell my 55 gallon tank because i would much rather have a SW tank with coral and everything. So I got a used 29G Oceanic Biocube, 10 lbs. live rock, and 20 lbs. aragonite live sand. I also bought from this really good LFS that i discovered 29 gallons of well established salt water and some RO/DI water for cleaning. Everythings all set up and th sand is settling. Anyways just wanted to let you guys know whats goin on with me

I don't get it; why didn't you keep the 55 instead of downgrading.

Because the biocube comes with everything i need for SW built in and takes a lot less work than the 55 and looks better and i like it more.

Did you just put fish in the tank a few days after setting it up? You didn't cycle? I'd for sure watch your parameters, you very likely will have a spike in ammonia and nitrite.

The "used" water does nothing for cycling your tank. :-(

The live rock alone could produce a spike.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
