Yeah thought so was going to do a large one. Only issue i have is I'm going away for 3 days on friday till Sunday, so weighing off i should do a WC weds or wait till Monday.You can change 100 if you want. Everything you worked for is on your substrate and the water column is waste. I cycled in a brute then just took the rocks out and didn’t have a single issue throwing all my critters in at day one
Unless you add inhabitants it doesn’t really matter. You are cycled. I would do a WC then add crittersYeah thought so was going to do a large one. Only issue i have is I'm going away for 3 days on friday till Sunday, so weighing off i should do a WC weds or wait till Monday.
Used $280 worth of rock. Broken up some large pieces and stacked ontop of each other got 3 or so rocks sitting together before I used some aqua epoxy from bunnings its in a tube works really well.. then I use the reef cement from ocean reef marine to really cement the base together.. if you were to turn ut all upside down the bottom would look almost grey.Looks good mate, interesting to see what others have done with their waterbox's.
Are your rocks premade or did you set it up that way?
If they're fixed, how did you manage it?
I kept my light off until I was ready for some fish. After adding fish, I ran my light at 10% just to give it some life. I have a small diatom bloom, but that’s where a cleanup crew comes in. I don’t think you will have a bloom unless the tank is cycled. But then again, there’s no point in having your lights on if the tank does not have any inhabitants for you to look at lol.Envy you for starting earlier and getting yours cycled haha.
Can't wait to start adding things!
I've heard about leaving the lights off to limit a bloom. Don't know how long I could last with that though haha.
Maybe a month or two I guess lol
