Hey guys... A quick update:
Took your advice - removed bioballs, added biomax instead.
Tank completed fish-less cycle in exactly 3 weeks (Funny - all the people I spoke with including at the lfs told me I HAD to have fish in there!! Jus goes to show you what they know).
Readings were 0 Amonia, 0 Nitrite, Some Nitrates - did a 25% water change.
Bought my first critters last night - 2 false percola, 10 hermits, 10 mexican snails...

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
