Yeah, cuz you're marveling at the predators eating and watching them do that. No one really marvels at them pooping it out and watches that part!! Lol.

Yeah. That's true haha. I'm also thinking... If possible maybe running 2 skimmers till I upgrade.

I just dosed ammonia to at least 4 probably around 6 right now. So we'll see what the ammonia and nitrites look like tomorrow :p I'm really hoping my cycle is almost over.

I'm ready to start stocking and enjoying! Haha

What order would I add all those fish? Just so I can add the first 4 then ill probably wait to add the others till after I upgrade.

Would adding the angler and the eel first, be a bad idea? Those are the 2 of my stock list that my lfs has right now.

So ugly he's cute! Is he trained to eat good? I hear they can be hard to get to eat.

I don't see why adding them first would be a bad thing. They will be your rock dwellers, so they probably won't bully your other fish when you add them. Of course- wait for someone else's opinion. Cause in just guessing it would be ok.

No problem with adding them first. They're not technically aggressive. Just predators. So long as your future additions aren't too small, it's fine.

I'm to the point in my cycle where I have to re-dose ammonia every 24 hours and I'm waiting on nitrites to drop. They're slightly less dark then yesterday. it's getting close!!! I can't stand the excitement! I haven't even found out how well my skimmer works cause I read its best to wait till after the cycle to turn it on.

As of right before dosing ammonia my parameters are:
Ph-8
Ammonia-0
Nitrite-2-5
Nitrate-20
