Yeah, lighting doesn't matter at all until you add coral. Good luck with the cycle, and keep us posted!!

I really like your scape it looks really good. I just got done cycling my 55g tank. I did not use the raw shrimp method but from reading on this forum some people said it stinks! And some people said they didn't smell anything so idk on that one! Gl in the future and I will be following along

The shrimp doesn't smell to great after a few days. I'll only be using liquid ammonia from now on to cycle. Smells a lot better.
