Hello everyone! I wanted to start off by introducing myself, and giving a bit of info about my current (first!) set up. I've wanted to keep saltwater fish for years, and recently finally bought a Waterbox Cube 20+ (comes with the AI Prime HD light) as my first tank. I used dry reef saver rock, and Caribsea Arag-Alive Hawaiian Black Sand. I'm also currently using Tropic Marin Reef Pro salt. Admittedly, I'm not too happy with my first rockscape. I kinda rushed it in my excitement. To perform my Nitrogen Cycle, I decided to use Microbacter7 and Dr. Tim's Ammonium Chloride. This Sunday will be the end of week 2, and it looks like I will be ready to add fish! Ammonia started at 3 ppm, and is now 0, nitrites went up to 5 ppm and are now at .25 ppm, and nitrates are currently at 20 ppm. I'm hoping to go buy a couple of clowns tomorrow, do a large water change while they acclimate then add them in. I'm super excited, and I look forward to learning a ton through this forum. I must admit, I have done nothing but lurk on this forum and watch Bulk Reef Supply videos on YouTube. Ryan and Randy's guidance have been invaluable in me starting my tank and set-up. Thank you in advance for any help provided, and I look forward to getting to know some of you folks in the future!

Welcome! So glad you’ve moved from a lurker to a member! I’m not happy with my rockscape either. I need to change it up some.
