I think we could have a debate about a reef tank being established in 4 months ...

But, probably would depend more on the current bioload and how your nitrates are doing. Most likely you could get away with it.

Haha 4 months is a pretty long time to only have 3 fish IMO.

Anyways! Here are the results of the cycle in the 66 gallon. It is going too slow...

Cycles always seem to go slow because you can't stop watching it. If it makes you feel any better I overdosed the crap out of my 55 and almost added a month to the cycle time! Ask anyone I try to cook for, I can't measure to save my life.
