Well I bought my Refractometer and consequently had a good discussion on this, I have just taken my tank readings:

Salinity: 28-30ppt
Amm: 0ppm (or v close to 0.25?)
Nitrite: 0ppm
Nitrate: 20ppm

How is this looking, I have followed all the advice and think this has gone quite well, it looks like i have cycled and I can add my CUC at the weekend?

P.S. - 3 crab traps with no success - im sure he gives me the claw from some hole!!!!!!!!!

Can't wait, does the salinity look ok, it's hard to get a definitive answer from the web?

It might actually be a bit to high. When you do a water change drop it to .21-.25. .025 if your going reef

Here is an update and quick question, I have introduced two paired black and white clowns and I caught the crab! There seems to be brown algae of the sand and rock, is there an obvious producer of this. I an due a API phosphate kit in the next few days....

its most likely diatom and it comes with almost every new tank. A picture will help confirm it. If it is diatom, it should burn itself away in awhile

I can't seem to add pics at the moment, but I'm pretty sure it is what you say, just give it time I guess...
