I pretty much insta cycled with my 90g. I added like 60-70lbs from my 125g and the rest is base. I tested twice a day too when the rock went in and never saw a spike of anything, just nitrates.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I'll add some ammonia tomorrow after the tank is clear but here is where I'm at now

Tank has cleared up a bit and I can see through it. The left side still isn't done but I'll finish in a bit since I've got someone buying my clowns and hes an hour away.
