I am doing PWC's, and the Ammonia level has gone down a little. Not at Zero yet, but it's a start. The Nitrate and Nitrite levels are starting to go up the. They higher than they have ever been. As for my lighting... Right now I have a twin bulb Flourecent light. One bulb is normal Flourecent, and the other is a 10,000K Sun Coral bulb and is an Actinic 420. But With a little research and some budgeting I'm looking at getting a 48" Dual MH/T5 Classic fixture. My goal to have a Reef tank, So I'm working on getting all the propper things I need while the cycle is going.
One more Question. I've been trying to research sumps and how they work. Along with all the different set ups. I find bits and peices of what I'm looking for here and there, but nothing showing or stating step by step info. Any sites anyone may know about that can give me a step by step instructions to building and/or putting one together?
Thanks for all the help so far.
