Hello and welcome to the channel. Nice tank.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!
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.Welcome to R2R! I wouldn't have been brave enough to add corals yet, but the tank looks great.
