    As this reef tank journal, I have moved your thread to the correct section of the forum
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Some updates to the thread: I picked up 30pounds of live rock for the tank, it being so small I didn't want to overdo it, and it seems like I made a good choice because with 30 pounds and the pieces It came out looking nice.

    I used instant ocean salt mix, at 1/2 a cup per gallon as per the instructions on the bag.

    Also, the lighting I'm using is Coralife Lunar Aqualight HO T5 Aquarium Light Fixture, and i will be doing an actinic blub and a super blue bulb. For the second set a the 10K bulbs with another super blue blub, and depending on the coral responds, when I start adding getting/adding it might go to a 12k instead of the 10.

    Checked my water levels today:
    KH- 161.1
    NO3- 40ppm
    PO 5pmm

    Not surprised my nitrates are so high...day 3 using live sand. My wife decided to put it in the tank when I was work and didn't rinse it out.

    Picture of tank at day 3 of the cycle. Noticed I've got some growth on the live rocks with having the lights on for a few hours, will be leaving them on for the full 10 hour photo period today.

    Getting there. It's amazing that feather dusters are the first ones to appear in a cycling tank. I stared at mine waiting for the next life form to emerge during the wait.
    Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..

    Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.
