I just started a 75g FOWLR
tank. It has been cycled and I added my first 2 fish (PJ Cardinal , False Clown). The tank is doing great except for a algea outbreak. It is a reddish rust color. I think its cyno so I cut back on feeding put the powerhead back in there (I took it out to do PWC
but the outbreak happened once I did that). Also only turing on 1 light instead of all 4.
All That being said, I also started a small aquaclear powerfilter in my sump. I did this in order to start my QT. I have two questions...
1 - How long before the bacteria in my main tank establishes on the sponge and bio media in the aquaclear 30 I have? I'd like to set up the qt and get some more fish
2. I was thinking about a goby to work on the sand I have about 2 inch sand bed. Is that too shallow? also should i put some sand in the qt for the goby.(decorated goby, istigobius decoratus)
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I love this forum.
