Hey everybody, I appreciate your input. Okie seems like more info is needed here:
Lando: I started the SW
about 2-3 months ago. I made a 50% freshwater change then added the salt during the conversion and added the fish at the same day! (ya newbie...tell me about it). I only have the lion and a few crabs in a 55 gal
tank with the stock lights and filtration system. I purchases a skimmer and heater. I added live sand on top of the gravel and one dead coral decoration about 2 days ago.
dskidmore: I really believe it might have been the ls
or the decoration because the only problem I had before I added those two things to the tank were nitrates were somewhat high and the PH
was incredibly low. The S-gravity of my qt
is 1.022 about the same I kept the lion in. (UPDATE: I have gotten rid of the shrimp in the qt
- I'd rather keep the lion alive than the brine shrimp)
Now My question would be...How long can I keep the lion in qt
?? I have a 10 gal qt
set up. Anything I can do to speed up the cycling process of my display tank? I have already ordered some live rock and what about the qt
? Should I buy some more live sand?
