Please help me guys!
I love all the support on this site. I've gottena few hits.
But the conflicting info from this site and LFS
I started my tank 2 weeks ago
100 lbs live rovk
sump, protein skimmer, canister filter uv
went to fish store to buy a test kit and another thermometer (concerned i'm running too hot) and all the guy told me is that all I need is fish. Just put some fish in there. I've been holding back on this because of what i read on the boards, but everyone that works with fish (retired or at stores, or experienced folks that I personally know) tell me to throw damsels in. so after two weeks of info, i came home with 8 damsels that i've never seen before, they could be the meanest ever and I wouldn't know. And I've been reading for months!
The tank has been running for 3 weeks empty until today, growing algae and some feather dusters that hitchiked on the LR
Saw some pods
today...But now there are 8 fish in there, they look happy to have more room to swim around, but did I do the wrong thing? despite what LFS
told me about test kits (waste of money, just bring the water here and we'll test it no charge) should I still invest in a kit? The guy who set the tank up for me said all i need is a KH
test kit. That's most important. Right now I have the tank running, a hydrometer, a net and some fish food.
