Multi-tasking at its finest. Topping off water in the 20 gallon while reading forums on here.

If my pump will spin the right way i should start my cycle within the hour. Hopefully only a week or two( with stability) until i can add fish.

Good for you! I had initial trouble with my sump when I was setting up too. Many a rivers and ponds to clean up. It took time, but all is well now.

Have you decided about any of your fish? Any clue on your "centerpiece" or must have fish? I've been preaching in many other posts about chalk bass. He quickly became my favorite fish in the tank. I highly suggest one.

Keep on truckin.

I dont have a "centerpiece" fish yet but i do have my mind set on a coral beauty. Im still not 100% on my stocking list and things can change so we'll see what happens.

If your mind is set on a coral beauty, then that is your centerpiece Just check compatability guides and make sure everything else you add can live with a coral beauty.

I've checked online, checked my LFS, checked on here. So far everything is good but it also depends on the fish, they have their own personality.

Decided to redesign the aquascape. This isnt as easy as everyone makes it out to be.
