After a several days of readings like this; 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, and rising nitrates, I’m gonna consider my cycle done, and I’m ready to add a small hardy fish soon, likely a Blue-Green Chromis…

As a reminder, I used a few types of bottled bacteria; Red Sea’s ReefMature, Dr. Tim’s One and Only, and Brightwell’s MicrobacterStart, plus Arag-Alive Fiji Pink live sand, then ghost fed some pellets and even added a bit of raw shrimp…

Setting up my Apex controller and I’m liking it so far! So many options and customization…

I had to recalibrate the temp probe down a full degree based on 6 other thermometers I used and were all in agreement, that seemed like a big adjustment but oh well.

And I understand the salinity and ORP probes need a few days to break in, I’ll probably recalibrate salinity again in a week or 2 to be sure.

Finally finished the other half of my aquascape, inspired by the Negative Space style and BRS’ video on it. I’m really happy with how it all turned out, an organic look and with lots of places low and high for future corals…

the left half is 44lbs and the right is 32lbs for 76lbs total, but lots of extra surface area than just stacking I think, and I’m also running some MarinePure blocks and spheres underneath too…
