Thumbs up My normal is different now- thanks everyone

I stopped doing 10% changes EVERY day. I now do 1 10% change midweek and a 30% change on the weekends on my puffer tank. I'm working on a biocube set up so that I can fix and build a better set up with my 40g breeder and my 10g nano. Thanks to everyones help/ encouragement I have stopped my saltwater insanity- and it actually helped get me over that last phos stall, just in time... I have all rocks I'm going to use in my 10g and the sand and rocks I'm going to bust up for rubble for the back in my 40g (sand is for the front ). My 10g is getting the snail work over (10 nassarius, 13 astrea, 5 ceriths and one turbo) and rock curing- I got a ton of empty coralline covered turbo snail shells free from petco so I chipped as much as I could off into filters and crushed the rest of the shell up and tossed them into my big pile of rocks and snails- I haven't seen my peppermint shrimp in days- however I found 2 molted shells and there is a TON of rock for him to hide in so I'm not too worried

I did plant my ludwigia repens in my 10g planted

and I- fixed the light ballast for my cube (replaced a couple of wires and replaced the bulbs), took out the media tray and false bottom and cleaned it out. Found instructions on how to mod to add a light to the back so I can have cultured rock and maybe some chaeto- I have a spare 400 and 600 halide and ballast with hanger and reflective hood to use for light supplement should I decide to try my hand at corals, haven't quite made up my mind yet. I'm too sick to finish tonight, but I am all set up to put it all together and begin cycling tomorrow I'm using all of the water from my 10g (cycled in 10g of real ocean water over the past 10 days), 10g from my puffer tank (I just did a 15g change out with real ocean water), and, yup- I'm filling the rest of it with real ocean water. I'm gonna have some fun playing with rocks tomorrow

That is worst than tragic! Pretty sure they will all die for no good reason that totally sucks! What is wrong with people not training their employees! At least look it up in a book if you aren't sure!
