Little update: still waiting for more ro
water to be produced, hopefully have the tank full by tonight, is there a reason why my tank water stinks? Is it from the rocks?
If I succeed in filling the tank I'm gonna mix in the salt and once it's at the right levels will be starting my cycle, gonna be using pure ammonia for that. Will I be better off waiting til the weekend when I get some live rock? Or does it not matter? Also should I run my skimmer during the cycle? If read mixed opinions on that.
I'm gonna be having a refugium in the sump which will be live rock rubble (maybe a small sand bed) and some macro algae or cheato (is there any difference in the two?), and should I pick this up on the weekend also or should I wait until the cycle is complete?
