Hi everybody, its been a while since I posted but I had some questions about the steps I have taken so far in setting up my fishtank.
So far, I have added the live sand and live rock to my fishtank, prior to that I had only added the salt water and measured the levels with the hydrometer which said everything was okay. Right now I have the tank running with the filters and heaters and am not sure what to do next!
The people at my local fish store say that I could start stocking it slowly within a day or two but I am nervous. They said that I needed to add at least a fish or two for them to poop and start the biological process, this being said they never asked me to measure the water or anything besides salinity and temperature.
What should I be doing next? I do not have a problem waiting for a tank to cycle however the worker at the LFS
said not to wait too long, because the live rock bacteria need something to eat and may die off if I do not add some fish. Can someone help me please?
