I Recently started a Biocube 32g this is my current light schedule On video. I don’t know if it’s good enough?? ;Bookworm I have been running the tank now for 42 days. Before starting the cycle I swap out the stock filter system the Biocube 32 comes with and got

InTaNk media basket
Poly Filter Floss
Biological Ceramic Filter Rings
Chemi-Pure Elite
de-nitrate

InTaNk Fuge Basket
Chaeto- LeD 10 hours When Reef Asleep
Live Copepods

12 pounds of live rocks
Live sand

Coralife Protein Skimmer
Eflux Wave Maker (2) 660 gph

day temp at 79f never exceeds 80f at 7pm my heater stops and tank cools temp down close to 75f through out the night at 7am heater turns back on again repeats Daily Kinda to give it that hotter temp by day cooler temp at night.

I have a UV sterilizer connected to pump but only using when adding new fish or coral in case has any parasites I keep off otherwise

today I started adding the ESV Bionic 2 part
I added 8ml of each I will probably just add this same amount 1-2x a week or as needed looking to invest later on into a dozing system.

currently have 1 clown & 1 purple dottyback
gsp,candy cane coral, Zoan,
4-5 Herman crabs 1 starfish

Slowly trying to add mainly corals and a few other fishes

I’m Doing weekly water changes of 5-10g
I’m using Red Sea Coral Pro Salt
I’m Making My Own RO water using a 4 stage


Please feel free to give me Feedbacks If Im doing something wrong or what I can do to improve the aquarium to make it better.

Thank You Guys

Looks good, only think I would recommend would be to try to get temps stabilized, you don't want too much of a daily swing.

78 degrees seems to be the favored target temp:)
