Minor setback. Discovered a tiny leak in the back right of the sump section. So I drained the back part and put silicone covering the leak. Gonna let that cure and then weíll see. Should be an easy fix though

Welp I ordered a new tank. 2 small cracks in the back of the tank that sketch me out to much so got a brand new tank for peace of mind. Rather not have a huge incident where the tank breaks and dumps 20 gallons onto our new houses floor

Did some tests to see If the cycle has started. Looks like ammonia is around 4 which I dosed to but looks like cycle hasnít quite started yet as no nitrites or nitrates. pH is 8.2.

I still really like the JBJ and an aqualifter for smaller tanks. It sure did the trick on my 55.

I know cycling stinks but itís a necessary evil of the hobby lol. I think fish stock wise will be 2 designer clowns and either a helfrichi firefish, blackcap Basslett or a pair of yasha gobies w a pistol shrimp

Cycles definitely going! I added a thing of bio spurs today, gonna test tonight to see if it helped. I was always skeptical of the bottled bacteria but it seems to be working

Ammonia hit 0 yesterday
Nitrite is still around 5 and nitrate is 40. The most annoying waiting game lol
