2 weeks and I'm already addicted?

I have just started up my 14 gallon biocube. It has been running for about 2 weeks now. I just put in the LR & LS yesterday. I will post some pictures and let me know what you think! I joined this forum in hope of learning as much as I can about marine aquariums. I live in Arizona and I love the ocean, I like to go to Rocky Point, MX when I can. I started my nano reef so I could always have my own peice of the ocean. I would like to hear from you!

I got well cured rock from my LFS they are remodeling so I got what is out of there personal tank. 12 years in there tank. I have a test kit for ammonia nitrates etc... I will test twice a week or so. I have two crabs in that were stowaways in the rock. What do I feed them? I have been putting fish flakes in there I think they are scavaging them up. I plan on getting a clown fish at first and I would like to get an anemone eventually

Get some pellets for the crabs. Not too much at once though. You can likely add your fish fish if that rock was 12 yrs old. Instant cycle! Still, watch the ammonia and nitrates as you add fish add feed more.

Try to save the anenome for 6 - 12 months after you really get the hang of it and can keep the water stable.

Good luck!

The top rock is sitting up there but it seams to be pretty secure. It is like a tripod so I think it will be fine. ( I Hope) thanks for the concern.
