Its been going Since about August with my first batch of live rock.. I started adding RO
water in October(just bought theRO/DI
unit 3 weeks ago to make my own) My tank was semi-established until I had my disaster with the entire bottle of flake food in the tank and I changed all of the water. But the live rock was still cycled. I added more live rock,Protein skimmer about 8 days ago. I just started my testing chart I figure 2 weeks more and then start building my clean up crew, after about 6-8 weeks add some corals, I guess the beginners mushroom pack..... Try that for about 3 months and then add a serious LPS
coral around late spring/summertime which is the best time to ship because of ambient temperature outside during shipping.
About supplementing my calcium level from my test has read 360 with RC and my alkalinity about 150 I have read to get calcium above 400 at least for a healthy reef and will have to supplement for sure to get the beautifull purple coraline coverage I desire......
Does this sound like a good plan??
