My royal gramma eats anything. It's best to vary the diet, though. In the wild, fish don't eat the same thing every day. I have about 7-8 different types of food that I rotate. You don't need to get quite that many, but get a few different ones.

So this is interesting, I've been a fw guy for so long I forgot how much space (gallons) decorations, substrate, etc took up. After sand and rock the 38 took 26 gallons of ro....


No salt in yet I am waiting for it to get here but I wanted to know how much I needed to add. And cloudy so going to run filter floss while waiting on shipping for silicates etc but here's a cloudy pic

I know the feeling of wanting to get things moving, but you got a bit ahead of yourself........ salt should've gone in before the sand.

Oh I know I just wasn't sure how much water it would tank and unfortunately i don't had the space to make say 50gallons so I wanted to know how many gallons of water my tank held with sand and rock I'm going to borrow 50g worth of salt from a friend and then add it tomorrow to the spec. I figure if I go a little short it should have time to mix in and the. I can slowly bring it to the right sg. Also I was hoping to get some of the water cleared up.... Even though as I type this I know I'm going to have to mix it up......

Also odd question could I run a spar hob and add my salt into the hob so the water has to dissolve it? That way it wouldn't settle on the sand and take longer?
