So excited to be a part of the SW world!


I am so excited about this site.. due to the fact that I have no I deas or friends that can give me advice on my new adventure into the world of salt water fish tanks. I have a 14g biocube tank. I started it a few days ago... I added the saltwater sand and Live rock to the back where the bioball were... I read to take them out... I order some LR online and I am waitin patiently for it to arrive to add to the front of the tank.

I think I need a stronger pump... but I am not sure... and maybe a powerhead. but I dont know what it is or where to put it in the tank. I want to do this right and have no problem taking my time. My tank is cloudy right now.. but it should settle down I would think in a day or two.

what tests need to be done on my tank? What test kits should I get?

Welcome!!! API is fine for cycling test ph, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate. There's some good threads on here for cycling.
