Thanks for the welcome back, fishfreek!
I have missed it. Freshwater just isn't doin' it for me and in my reading, I think I have been able to determine my problems with my first attempt. Patience, patience, patience.
I plan on setting up a 90 gallon (40 gallon is just too small) and letting it cycle for no less than 8 weeks whether it needs it or not.
I was just recently reading about sumps and refugiums and want to do some reading to see if they will help my 90 gallon setup. It is going to be reef - only three or four fish.
Do you use a sump/refuguim? What about you, NaH2O?
Thanks again for the articles and extra effort.
Look for my new tank photos around the end of Christmas.
