Tank deemed cycled by tests completed at Southwest Reef Co.

I added a Royal Gramma after drip acclimation that seemed to take forever, but wasn't THAT long. RG really seemed to be keeping an eye on me when I would come to check on progress.

RG went into hiding after getting added to DT and did not come out for pellets several hours later.

Added a small amount of Microbacter 7.

Do you know what you plan to have your light set to once you add corals? I have the same light on my Waterbox 20
I plan to start from the settings below.
Rented a par meter From bulk reef supply, and it came in today! This is tonight’s readings and tweaking of light intensity. Wondering if I need to bump my intensity up a little or leave it be? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
