Trying to slowly work through all the items on my 150G tank build. Pre-cycled my aquascape for 2 months and put seasoned Marine Pure blocks in my sump along with some live rock from my small 32g Fluval Nano tank.
Feel like my cycle should be relatively short since I'm also dosing Microbacter7 daily to continue to seed the bacteria population.
I'm testing ammonia (still with my original API test kit) and NO3 and PO4 with Hanna checkers. After 1 week, starting to see increases in all 3, but after Monday's tests I was at 0.5ppm Ammonia, NO3 was 1.5 and PO4 was 0.04.
I did put (4) green chromis in the tank a few days ago to generate some nutrients to feed the bacteria, and I put a small lobo from my small tank in as a tester coral.

What's your favorite thing about reef shows? Is it the corals, the cool equipment, the community...?
