I am in the process of setting up a 100gal reef. Now the family (wife) goals are to buy a house first. I only need a ballast and fuge/pump to start new tank, however I have the basics to start smaller version now now. I was wondering if it would be ok to get cycling done ahead of time. was thinking of getting some (100lbs or so) of the LR
cycle done and growing coraline now. I am also very fond of all of the critters that just grow on the LR
and sand. I have some shrooms
, polyps and riccordias in a nano that I can throw in there for the time being. I have a 96W 10K CF
and a 96W Blue Actinic CF
and neccessary circulation equip now. Would these lights be enough to support a healthy LR
system for six mos or so?
I just don't want to do all of the plumbing and wiring then have to tear it down and redesign all over again, especially when the tank is so new.
