Thanks.
All my fish were healthy I had one that was sick but they refunded me on him. I loved their coral though. It was all about an inch larger than what I ordered.

Do you know what the sick fish was infected with?

They do grow, and become more aggressive with size. But like mentioned they probably have different personalities.

I was just looking at what I posted it looked like I was saying "cool" that the fish was unhealthy. Oops. Sorry about that, I meant to say cool about having mostly healthy fish come from them.

It's all good lol. They're really a good place though. I'll be ordering coral soon for my 25g build so I'll let you know my experience again.

Ok all, I added two teaspoons of ammonia to my tank. I would I have done three but it says "extra strength," so I just wanted to be on the safe side.

So when the tank goes through goes through the ammonia within 24 hours, and it turns into nitrates/nitrites that means the tank is cycled, right?

Thanks.

Yep your right about that 24 hrs ammo to trates. Did you check your ammo concentration after you added? It took my 180 5 caps to get to 4 ppm.

If ammonia and nitrites go to zero then you are cycled. Big water change to get the nitrates down and add fish and corals....slowly of course!
