and thought since I was still cycling that the damsels would be OK?!
Of course, the general thought is not to cycle with fish. Once you do get setup though, it may be a good idea for peppermint shrimp to keep the aptasia at bay.

Peppermint shrimp are part of the plan.

As for the Damsels, I am not going to begin to make excuses... It was not something that I wanted to do. My husband has never had a Salt Water Tank before and it was driving him crazy to not have any fish. So while picking up the LR Sunday, I gave in and said OK. I was concerned from the beginning, however I really thought that I could get them to make it. I know it's not fair to the fish, but 15 years ago when I first started a Salt Tank, that was the way you cycled, there wasn't all this LR available and we just didn't know any better.
It's so great that this hobby has changed so much for the better!

I can't thank everyone enough for helping me though this problem.

Your patience and knowledge is very much appreciated!

Don't worry about things. I am a husband, a big baby, and a whiner! I know how persuasive we can be You learned a great lesson without too much damage to your fish or checkbook. Chalk it up to experience and consider youself lucky you did not loose more expensive fish. Let your tank even out for a couple of weeks and then see how are things are. As always, your questions are more then welcome here. Lando

"I am a husband, a big baby, and a whiner! I know how persuasive we can be"

lando, thanks for the honesty! haha! your right on the persuation!

Since this has happened, perhaps he will settle down some, not to mention we are out of town for Thanksgiving and he won't be able to see the tank "with no fish" haha!

Quick Question, how do crabs handle an ammonia spike? I have one in the tank, somewhere, just wondering if he is OK?

Not me!! 8O
Just kidding.
The crab should be fine. They are like cockroaches, they can live through most anything. Thats why we get so many hitchhiker crabs.
