oh no i didnt add the salt directly to the tank i mixed a gallon of saltwater and added extra salt.
the live rock from what the pet store says was strait from the ocean no idea if it was cured.there are pictures of some in my gallery.
ammonia is 0
nitrate is 80ppm
nitrite is 0ppm
akalinity is 300ppm
temp is 79-80
i did a partial water change last nite only 10 gal
though everyone else in the tank seems to be happy.even the tunicate that has been growing on one of my rocks for several months.(from what i've read they are supposed to be hard to keep alive)
as far as the live rock i have had the pet store order 10 lbs for 2 weeks in a row,the first week i got 4 lbs this week i got 3.far from the 20lbs i asked for.i did go look online ,the cost of the rock was 34$ but the cost to ship it would have been nearly 50$kinda hard to pay more to ship than you do for the rock,so hopefully this week more will come in(haha)i guess i should mention i live in nowhereville.
as far as getting new fish the pet store traded me the tang and the dottyback for the basslet.
i'm not going to put anymore fish in the 75 gal
until i get all my rock in there,but i do want to get my 55 gal
set up as soon as i unload the fw
fish in it,and that is where i want a puffer to go.is 55gal to small for a puffer? all i plan to put in it fish wise is a puffer a lionfish,and maybe one more not sure yet.of course that will be at least 6 mos down the road.
ok i think thats everything,anything else?
