I think part of the problem is more than enough live rock not enough bio load. You need life in there to feed the "circle of life" your tanks parameters won't be stable until you have it complete. I think that's a big part of a lot of reefers issues. When you don't have bio load and coral and inverts etc... the tank is constantly adjusting.

True…. I have been dumping skimmate in the tank from the cube as fast as my crappy skimmer can make it to provide fish poop.

I little bit disagree with the live rock part… I don’t think I have enough for my size tank. Yours plus mine is probably aroun 40
Pounds total? …. I want to add more . Will hopefully rectify in the near future.

;) any amount of live rock with no bio load is to much :) even if you added a pair of clowns a tomni tang and maybe 2 or 3 more fish I think you would be at or below your rocks bio load threshold... we need to get life I to that tank.

I agree with getting some life in tank but if your going to get moar rock then i would do that soon too. Live rock startups is a different process then dry rock. You are doing right by dumping skim in also to compensate. My 2c is get some more rock for the bacteria to colonize and a couple fish to help with poo production.

Ps not late this time.
