So the cycle is finally complete, and I've started up the tank. I got the first part of my cleaning crew today: five hermit crabs and two turbo snails. I'm in love with those snails. Their faces are so pretty, and they remind me of elephants lol. The crabs are fantastic, they've already cleaned up a patch of brown algae that formed during the cycle. I found a really nice reef store so I've decided that's where I'll get the rest of my stock. Shrimp will be added next week!
Just wanted to say thanks again for helping me out. I honestly would still be lost without your help. Thanks a bunch!
