Today marks a week that water has been in. I'm not sure I want to do a water change just yet.

Ok thanks.


So got a question. My 55 is right beside my 20. Once I'm cycled I wanna move the 55 over a few feet. I have 4 furniture pads under it but it's still freaking heavy with the 55g of water, 40 pounds of sand and about 20 pounds of live rock. Any tips?

Oh and my water temp was 82 today. Prob from lights I added last night. Thinking I can put a fan under the tank on the sump would that lower it any?

So far I have noticed some green algae on the back of my LR. My wife things we have a clam but it looks like a rock too me. Thought I had some bubble algae but turned out to be a failed attempt at using epoxy.

And today's test result.

Salinity 1.022
Ph-8.0
Ammonia-0
Nitrite-0
Nitrate-0

Now I got established live rock, a sump that had been running for atleast a year before, and 5 damsels in there and in middle of 2nd week. Is this where I should be? I keep waiting for a spike in anything and have gotten nothing.

Question I really have is when can I switch over my 4 fish from the 20g since ammonia is kicking my butt in that one. Fish should be dead from what I read but they still going.
