    So the tank has gone through the full cycle:D:D:D, the GHA is gone well 90% of it some still on my back wall but leaving that for the hermits to eat.I have been doing 5gal water changes every sat for the last 2 weeks since I saw that ammo was 0same for nitrite. The phos was at .33 when the GHA started growing, I added some Chemi-pure Blue and now we are rocking and rolling!!!! I picked up some GSP from a buddy a toadstool and some zoas, they are all open and happy will post some picks tomorrow!!

    *salinity 1.025
    *ph 8.2
    *ammo 0ppm
    *nitrite 0ppm
    *nitrate 3ppm

    I am waiting on Cadlights to make some more of the pls-50 elite skimmers so I can grab one. I did not have much options besides Tunze DOC skimmer witch would only fit in one of the overflow chambers, I don't want that because I want to keep the filter socks in place. I also read a lot of issues with the Ghost skimmers so I am staying away from that, I do not have room for Hob skimmers and others are just not rated high enough for my preferences.

    So I went to pick up the sunburst yesterday, when I got there I did not want to risk a very costly nem in a new tank. So I grabbed a rainbow men for now, once the tank will hit the year mark I will get the sunburst.
