this place is great. People are experienced,patient and courteous enough to cut right to the chase.
Now that Ive buttered you up
I received a 65 gallon tank as a gift. I plan on using Live-Rock, skimmer,power heads for current, and some kind of self contained wet/dry filter.(Eheim 2227? 2229?) I have too tight a space for "Hang On" type filters.
Along with the gift I received:
20 lbs of crushed coral,
40 lbs of Aqua-agra sand 3 packets of Bio-Spira. None of this stuff is returnable.
I have enough Dead Rock from an old tank to raise the new Live-Rock off the bottom of the tank when curing.
Is it OK to put ALL these ingredients together to cycle, then make appropriate tests and water changes over the 6 weeks?
If its not OK---then what is the proper order of Tank introduction for my stated items when I`m cycling?
The REMORA Skimmer has been highly reccomended to me, but the Prizm skimmers look more streamlined and are thin enough for my space. Are they acceptable?
thanks a million! Hopefully about 2 months to those Jawfish!
