She was a beautiful person! I am so happy that her dream lives on. Out of ashes comes something beautiful!
Thanks rev, looking forward to this. Thanks again for your PM last year. Eve had nothing but good to say about this forum and I feel the same way.

I'm so sorry for your loss...Cancer takes so many lives....It is such an inspiration to see you building this in Evelyn's memory. I am following along with anticipation to see how beautiful this tank becomes. I know she is smiling.

Thank you!
That's so awesome from you to make Eve's Reef a fact together with your dad.
He needs all the support he can get, all is it just a shoulder to lean on.
Don't hesitate to ask us questions no matter what they are, even none reef related questions some times will make a difference too.

Ben.

Thank you for keeping her dream alive and moving forward. I did not know her and regret getting a chance to. I know that you will make her proud of what you accomplish with her system. I hope it thrives and goes beyond all expectations to become a continuance of her life.

Cycling Issues

I could use some input...

I started the 180 up Dec 18th. Salinity is at 1.25, PH 8.0. I used Florida base rock and sand. I added 50 pounds of Carib Sea live sand. I added three large shrimp and they have since dissolved. I just added 4 more about a week ago. The ammonia just hit.50. No Nitrite readings. Was I wrong in adding more shrimp? Should I be concerned about Nitrates? I would really prefer to not add any live rock to this system.

When you are ready for livestock, I have some easy to keep frags (SPS and LPS- whatever you like) for you if you would like them. I am local, so just send me a PM.

I wouldn't be worried about Nitrite at all.
If you been cycling since Dec 18 you should be fine.
Just take the shrimp out and test the next 5 days for the ammonia to go down.
If ammonia is within range 0.1 than start looking for your first cheap fish (Damsel or so).
If the first fish will be ok than after a week you can ad a nicer fish.
After 3/4 weeks you can ad some easy corals.
Mean while keep testing on your PO4 and ammonia.
It's good to know also where your PH, ALK, CAL and MAG is by next weekend.
Let us know where you at with your # in a few days.

Make sure your salt is 1.026......not 1.25.

Thanks Diesel… the salinity is 1.026 as of right now.
Ammonia is at .50
Nitrite is showing zero
I will test other parameters tomorrow and give a full report.
