thanks for all the help here everyove... you guys were all very helpful!!
I got my cycle good without needing water change for some reason after my nitrites went 0, my nitrates went to 10 so i thought it was ok...
I got some livestock to try it out and check if it is fine and here's what I bought so far:
2 red leg hermit crabs
1 concha snail
1 trochus sand snail
1 turbo snail
1 blue damsel
my set up:
~ 75 gal
~ fluval 204 filter (i know its small but i just use it for more circulation)
~ seaclone 150 protein skimmer
~ 2 powerheads (running at 1200 liters per hour)
~ 40 pounds of sand
~ 70 lbs. of base rock (and couple pounds of LR
to spread on it)
~ 2 regular fluorescent bulbs (running at 40W each)
I know i need to put more LR
so I'll get some more soon.. also I think I'm going to get a lighting system 24hr cycle for my tank so I can enjoy it better and maybe get a few corals later on.
I would post pics here to show you guys my tank but i dont know how to use the code so I guess I'll figure that out later.
Heres my list of things that I want to buy:
(feel free to tell me what else I need and where I should get them)
~ fully cured LR
~ lighting system (24hr cycle with timer, blue actinic light, lunar lights, etc)
~ powerheads ( I need to replace mine because it uses 220v)
system (I think I'll get this one on ebay)
thanks again and will post pics soon.. just teach me how to :P
