Just did my first actual water test. I got 1.25 on the Ammonia! I'm excited. No nitrites yet. Pulled the shrimp out though, was stating to get stinky!

Today I went to Acrylicaquariums other known as ATM, other know as Tanked on Animal Plant and ordered the fish for this build. Also bought a torch coral for my reef. I figure by the time they get the fish, this tank will be cycled! looking at a month anyhow!

Yes, I would love to go to ERI as well! I know ATM has volunteer opportunities. I have a friend who has been helping out over there and he said they pay him in merchandise and frags. Guess they don't need to ad him to the payroll that way. I would like to hop on over there just to get some experience with acrylic.

Anyhow. Pulled the shrimp out the other day because it was getting a little stinky. My ammonia is sitting at 1.25 and nitrites still 0. Come on nitrites, where ya at, haha. Added some more live rock to the refuge in order to help the cycle. Probably made it start over again. LFS here has 6 inch eels. Wanted one so bad! But I will remain patient!

I just bought a ten gallon tank for that same reason but cant figure how to turn it into a sump. I also have an xp3 and a small marine land canister and a fluidized bed filter is that to much?
