That is pretty close on how my most recent tank went.
But, i disagree on a few things.
I think the rock should go in first. 4-6 " of water. Then sand, followed by the water. By placing the rock on the bottom there is no chance a burrowing critter could cause an avalanche.
Week 4. A 30 gal
clean up crew may be too large to start. Add a few at a time. If add too quickly they may eat all of the algae immediately and then starve.
Weeks 6 and 8. That is alot to add to a tank in that time. And maybe too many.
Weeks 10 and 12 6 fish in 2 weeks is way to fast. I go with 2 fish to start. 2 weeks later add 1 fish to a qt
for 4-6 week period. If safely passed qt
they go in the tank and a new guy goes into qt
Hey I'm not knocking the article. I just believe they are in it to make money by selling you stuff you may not need. Maintaning an aquarium. Do not dose your tank with anything you can't test for. Just because my tank needs some Ca
doesn't mean yours will.
Hey I'm not knocking the article. I just belive they are also trying to make a sale.
The one thing that is most important in this hobby is patience. The article never mentioned that.
