    Also I just did water tests as it's the 7th day of my cycle.

    AM - 0.25
    NitrITE - 5
    NitrATE - 5

    Seems like it's coming along pretty quick.

I assume you are doing a fishless cycle so keep your ammonia levels around 1 - 2 ppm.

    I'm no expert but 18000 K temp bulb sounds like one for a coral reef tank. Plants need/prefer towards red (6000-7000 K?)
    Thank you. I only put in two of the tabs, on opposites sides of the tank, I'll watch it. So far I don't see any algae on day 7 of cycle. There was a little slime on my heaters suction cups when I moved it, but that's about it. And not sure about the Power GLO - it says FW, SW, planted, Corals, and invert, but returning it anyway : )
