I just put a hob
filter from my old tank on it with the carbon pad thats been there for a week and i just added a smaller fresh peice in behind it. I just put all my new sand it as well, so now its real cloudy ! Figured i might as well. Im going to take a few small pieces of lr
out of my current and put them in once it clears up and i can get my sump running. I need about 15 20 more gallons to get it fired up. I cant really take my tank water and put it in there to fire it up and transfer like i originally intended. I have to get this sump fired up, in order to get this cycle overwith, i have a feeling im going to hit a heavy cycle once i start up the sump, the overflow tubes and some spots in the overflow i just couldnt get to in order to remove the deposits left from the freshwater setup it once was from the previous owner.
Test kits are 4 months old going on 5. Im almost out, but sorry for the long post. You guys are all the help i have !
