Hi all I’m super new to the hobby and joined the forum because I feel like I’m going to learn a lot on here but I just set up my first saltwater tank the Fluval eco 13.5 and wanted to see how I did?

you can start to add some food into the tank, and watch for an ammonia spike, then nitrite, then nitrate. After that, you can add a fish. Adding the turbo start now will quicken your cycle
Ok thank you I’ll try that! Thank you for your response! Couldn’t you also use a frozen shrimp?
