I got 25 lbs of LR and 35 lbs of foundation rock from the LFS, both cured. Another 45 lbs from liveaquaria.com, cured.

One of the damsels appeared not so good, so I removed it and gave it away to a friend temporarily. The two others are ok.

Water paremeters today are:
0 Ammonia
30 nitrate
.1 nitrite
8.2 ph

I will do a pwc everyday until the readings become zero.

The LFS guy did tell me that damsels can be a pain once they become bigger and can bully other inhabitants. He suggested I can give them away after a while.

Pl. Let me know what else I need to do other than daily pwc.

for now you should be ok with just monitoring the levels often and doing pwc's. after a few weeks to a month i would say you could slowly start adding fish to the tank... HTH

ok, thanks.

Research says that keeping an aquarium reduces stress. I am an exception I guess. :-(
