Starting up a new 55 gal
reef tank. I know everything has to cycle. but do have a few questions that I am sure EVERYONE has had when they started.
I put in 75 lbs of cured LR
and 60 lbs live sand. It looks beautiful but know things are going to start to happen and I know that.
Saltinity is 1.023, temp 76. PH
is 8.0 Ammonia, Nitrites & Nitrates are starting to climb, as expected. My LFS
sold me test kits for KH
and Calcium. I have not added Calcium to my system yet. WHEN DO I START TO ADD CALCIUM and WHAT IS BEST?
As far as KH
, my water is hard and I could get any results when tested. What would be best to condition my water and WHEN do I start?
