thanks for the welcome....people seem much nicer on here than SWF.com
yea i thought i was going fish only so the lfs
sold me on the crushed coral, but now i wish i had half and half sand and coral. i have been thinking about taking some out and getting some sand. but dont really want to mess up my rock structure right now.
i bought rock from two different lfs
the ones on the right of the tank look fully cured, i dont think im going to support the one that sold me the uncured rock since they sold me on the CC and not sand, and since they said the rock was fully cured. the other lfs
only does fish and not all pets. plus their tanks look better and have much better choice of coral.
and about the cycle, also i didnt read about the shrimp thing until after they sold me the damsles, they said with enough Cycle added most should survive. thats ok cause i will only want a few when im ready to add the big fish. now i wish i did the shrimp method.
btw, when should the amonia start to peak i have 11 fish and its almost been a week now and amonia is still <.25. i added almost half a bottle of Cycle when i added the damsles on tuesday.
also wondering what you all think of this list of species to add. please let me know on order to add or compatibility. thanks
