Here is a fts of our 14bc--just really
started stocking...it has 20 lbs of live sand, 13lbs of live rock (this has been running since June 15th-and our cycle seemed to be finished on the 20th-with water changes, and additions of livestock, no noticeable changes in parameters.
Ammonia: 0, Nitrite: 0, Nitrate: 0, pH: 8.4, sg
: 1.026, temp: 79,
calcium: 400, phosphates: 0
Cutting the lights back to 6 hrs a day took care of our algae problem, and the ro
water has kept it under control, so we can start slowly adding daytime
to the tank!! yay!
one zoanthid polyp rock (red/brown skirts with green centers), 2 false percs, and 1 diamond goby...all three fish were fed for me by the lfs
-and I've had my eye on the rock for about a month (it's doubled it's polyps in that time)...he's picking up 4 plain red mushrooms, and a small pulsing zenia colony for me, along with some small blue leg hermits and nass snails, and I am super excited!!
Any advice, comments on what other softies to add (or if anyone has anything they would like to part with, let me know!!
We're doing 5gal water changes each Saturday, and small top off's about every 3 days.
