. I "read" a month with 1 fish (instead of 1 month with fish). My brain went dyslexic on me! Man, I hate when that happens. I see you have a 90. We setup our 120 at the end of October (looks to be about the same timeframe as you?). Our diatoms lasted about a week an happened around the 2w mark, but then again our cycle finished really fast. Do you have any LR
? I think that must have really helped us. We never really had much of a nitritre spike and trAtes never got over 20.
We had a massive feeding accident at Christmas and due to many huge water changes we've been using tap ever since, luckily it hasn't affected our tank at all yet. The RO
came in last night (thank you filterdirect on ebay) and my husband has it almost setup. He needed one more thing (isn't that always the way?!). I think we have similar tank contents, but my fish must not be as big as yours. Usually towards the end of 1/2 a cube the crabs & shrimp are able to get their share and that is with an every other day schedule. Sometimes they don't even finish 1/2.
