One big stupid question. When doing the PWC, do I need to make sure the new water is in the same temperature as the water in the tank before I pour it in?

I think it only matters when you have livestock in the tank but i will let our experienced members say for sure.

I agree if you had fish and esp. corals then yes it needs to be the same temp but on cycling I dont see why it would matter. I would try to keep it close anyway. within 5 or 6 degrees.

Thanks Melosu, that's good to know, so once I get my livestock I have to heat the water about the same temperature before pouring it in while doing the PWC.

Whatever you mix your water and salt in I would also keep a heater and a PH in there. A PH to keep good flow in to keep the mixing going on a heater set to what your tank temp is.

Thanks for the advice Melosu

These are the pictures after I did the PWC and I add some inhabitants and redo the aquascaping as well.



Nassarius Snails (TWO)
Astrea Snails (ONE)
Hermit Crabs (FOUR)

I think I need more CUC, but the store that I went doesn't have much choice, so I probably look at another LFS tomorrow.

Readings for today - 12/9/08
PH: 7.8
Ammonia: 0
Nitrite: 0
Nitrate: 5
SG: 1.023
Temp: 79F
