LoL scared me there for a second. I don't plan on having coral for a while. How much pure ammonia should I be using to dose during my cycle. I'm sure I'll be starting over now that I moved everything from one tank to another. I used the same sand water and rocks but I had to add more sand and water. Still need another 10 lbs of rock as well.

Dose it up to 5-6 ppm let it fall dose it back up and when ammonia and nitrite fall to 0 you should be good. Test it by dosing up to 1-2 ppm and see if it turns to nitrates in 24 hrs

Thanks to everyone for the wonderful information you have shared so far. I have yet another question. Is a single 700 GPH Aqueon Powerhead enough for my 40g? I'm not sure if I have any dead spots or not. Would 2 smaller ones be better? What would be your recommendations?

I always prefer 2 smaller ones as opposed to 1 large one. Gives you a more random flow

This is what I'm thinking as well. How about keeping the larger one and adding a smaller one on the opposite side. Do you think that is a viable option?

Thanks so much for keeping my thread in your scope Bigredsreefs10. Wouldn't have gotten this far without you (even though I'm not too far).. I know this post is a little OT but I thinks its warranted.

Here are the current results from today's test. Do I need to do a water change?
