OK, I almost have all of my "stuff" - just waiting on my RO
unit to arrive. I want to eventually have LR
but since I'm already waaaaaaay over budget on this I have a few questions:
1) I know LR
will seed the DSB
so it will eventually become live, but for right now will it speed my cycle by just adding LS
? If so, how much should I get for a 75g tank (I already have a 3" - 4" base)?
2) Exactly when do I add the LS
? As soon as the tank has salt water in it?
3) When do I add the shrimp and how many do I put in?
Also, I guess I'm a little confused about the PH
's (I have 2). Do I aim them in the same direction (creating a whirlpool) or at eachother?
Heck and while I'm at it do I run my canister filter during the cycle?
Thanks for any answers you can give - as you can see I need all the help I can get :D
