I have a 75 gallon tank with a Fluval 404 filter. I have 2 giant bags of CC. I have 4 lbs of live rock and 4 rocks that used to be LR
. I have 1 plastic rock and 4 plastic plants and some Caulerpa. I do not have a protein skimmer or powerhead because I was told I didn't need them yet (I know now that is wrong).
I got 3 damsels and 3 clownfish (I know- how stupid but I got excited) and they lasted 24 hours. I then got 3 damsels and a clown goby on the second round and they lasted 10 hours. I realize now that because I didn't have the live rock between the fish disasters that my tank was not fully cycled and that is why nothing is living. I am getting a cup of live sand to put in my tank this weekend from a lady I have been talking to over the internet. I am hoping to be able to buy some more LR
when I get paid next week.
I didn't realize how addicting this hobby can become!!!!!
