I did but I couldn't use enough media due to a crappy filter so I still had a 2 week cycle.

Yeah, I'm going that route on my next tank but this time around I had some flake I know I'll never use so I just threw some in.

Currently my 17 is at a stand still. I've only got some inverts, mushrooms, and zoas. Money has been right this Christmas season but I'm hoping to get back on track this month and finally get my lights ordered. At least the first inhabitant is currently in QT.

I'm hoping for a successful fish keeping 2014 though, lots of plans in mind. Of course there's the 17 bedroom tank upgrade to a 30~ gallon, I might turn my QT into a nano and use the 17 as a QT once I upgrade, a larger SW tank in my basement (still undecided on size and tank type but have been thinking of a 150 cube for a while), and finally a 60 hex that I got for free that might be a discus tank.
