Water is getting ready right now. Will a 5g pwc do it?

So, if we add all fish, when do we add the corals and shrimp? Should we leave the media in the 30 or transfer it?

Your probably going to need more than a 5 g pwc to get trates down from 20-40

I think you could since you were building up BB in the 66g.

Don't get a fish with 20-40 nitrates! Do a pwc and get him tomorrow.

Alright if we can do the pwc in an hour or so then get the goby would that be good? Problem is we need to mix over night or els the salinity will e screwed up. But its a larger tank so a few points off wont affect the overall salinity at all

Well, I mean, I guess you could get him tonight, then the pwc tomorrow. I just wouldn't be okay with 20-40 nitrates. Because thats at the top of the acceptable range.
