I decided to wait until the Boxing Day Sale to buy my clean up crew. Not only for the health of the animals, but also for the 50% discount
I'm glad that I did because this weekend I did the 50% pwc
and my numbers are off again, it looks like I was only 1/2 way through the cycle.
My bacteria is ripping through the ammonia. I am spiking it daily to 4ppm and about 12-14 hours later it's at 0 again. My Nitrates are around 30-40ppm and my Nitrites are 10.0 +
. They were so great before, but it looks like that was because it was only 1/2 way through the complete cycle.
Anyways, a few more weeks of waiting won't kill me. I'm now excited to say that my hubby is getting excited about the tank. He drove me to the LFS
the other night and spent the time looking at fish, equipment, etc. He's now talking about helping stocking and buying me a bigger tank
I have settled on my line up finally. This list is in order of how I'm going to put them in the tank too.
Goby x 2
Jawfish x 2-3
Puffer x 1
Kaudern's cardinal x1
Anthias x 2-3 (I think I'm going to go for a less agressive breed to aviod the bullying of the subordinates)
Let me know your thoughts.
