Yes, I have had the water for about 2 months now, I have been putting off adding livestock due to reading the forums here and wanted to be able to completely cycle and work on maintenance plans for when I do add to the tank. I have not measured in a 24 hour period though and will now give this some attention. I am very hesitant to add livestock, just for the fact that I want to make sure anyone starting out realizes the importance of getting the water cycled before adding live fish.[QUOTE="Are you dosing ammonia and finding that it converts within 24 hours? I always recommend to start stocking with a clean up crew, meaning snails and/or hermits.
grantm91 has a great thread going and I had hoped that adding reefs and invertebrates to the tank first would help me before I add fish. I am still in need of getting lights for the tank, that would depend on what LPS or SPS I decide to get. I have read in this thread some very important things that I have missed, especially keeping the calcium and ph levels consistent.
I tend to search the forums before posting, just so that I have exhausted all the research available. This instance, I felt the thread was completely interesting and contain great resource material for more of my decisions to come later.[/QUOTE]
Thanks Rob I'm glad you like my stuff ! Nart has done a pretty deep and high quality guide thread which gives insight to everything even lighting. Can someone link it for us as I have trouble navigating and finding stuff on tapatalk.
