I’m in the process of cycling a 90 gallon aquarium with a 25 gallon sump, it’s week 3 of cycling
I began the cycle with 50+ pounds of caribe sea Arag alive reef sand 40 pounds of special grade and the rest Fiji pink
Lots of dry rock( I didn’t weigh and can’t begin to guess the amount I used)
I have a gen 2 and gen 3 eco tech radion XR30, a hygger DC pump, red octopus 110 int protein skimmer, and a do aqua auto top off.
I’ll be upgrading from a 28 gallon cube, I’ve never had a tank larger than a 30 gallon or with a sump so I’m excited to start adding my fish and corals to my new tank.
I plan on starting a refugium with chaeto once the aquarium is up and going as well as adding additional equipment, I’m planning on adding 2 MP40’s into my main tank and a refugium light and small nano powerhead in the sump.
I’ve moved some inverts into the 90 gallon and hope to move the fish in the next week or so.

It’s always my favourite part to see new tanks and ask this question:
What fish are you planning?

Can you have a second wrasse with the sixline I ask because I have a sixline wrasse in my tank and would like to add a second wrasse at some time
I don’t recommend it, the genus that are known as the lined wrasse are VERY aggressive when they’re older and shouldn’t be mixed with other wrasse - They can and most likely will kill that second wrasse unless they are added in last.
