I've been soaking up as much knowledge as I can from this group. But actually took the time to get signed up and stop lurking. Lol. This is my first ever salt water tank. It's a tiny 14g Biocube that I picked up for a good deal. I've been talking about doing it for years now. Just starting through the cycle now. I am at day 21 as of this post. This is a live fish tank cycle. I have been monitoring my levels daily, and probably have been trying to keep the tank too clean. I believe I am at the end of the de-nitration cycle, as things have steadied out. I've gone through a diatom bloom during a huge spike in nitrates. It is still currently battling that, but a lot of the brown has started to cycle to green. Heres a few snapshots of where I'm currently at. I would welcome any feedback as what to expect in the coming weeks. Thanks all!




Hello and welcome to the channel. Nice tank.

It’s been pretty cool watching an explosion of pods in my tank. I haven’t populated any, it’s like they just appeared one day. At least I hope they’re pods. LOL.

Welcome to R2R! I wouldn't have been brave enough to add corals yet, but the tank looks great.
Yeah, totally a rookie move. But I have been very particular about water quality. Testing daily to make sure things don't spiral out of control. I have had no big swings and the softies are spreading quite well. I won't be adding anything else for quite awhile. I want to make sure it matures well.
