Welcome to my new tank build. I picked up this red sea reefer 250 used with a pair of kessil a360we lights. This past week I started acquiring gear during BRS's sale and give away.

Interested in knowing if the bright well actually worked?
It worked. I did seem to have a hiccup in the beginning. Followed the directions but after day 7 I wasn't seeing the ammonia dropping so I added more of the startxlm but this time I shook up the bottle a little. When I poured it in it looked different (first time I added it was clear, after shaking it was a little brown.) After that I saw drop in ammonia the next day. Its almost complete just some nitrites to come down.

Nice start! I like your rockwork. The angles feel like natural geological formations plus a sweet archway. I'm building a 250 too and figuring out my rockscape. I look forward to following along!
Thank you. I'm overall happy with it. Just hoping it looks good when I start to add coral.

A little update on the tank. Got the rock work done and in the tank today. Sand arrives tomorrow then maybe water in the tank this weekend. Going to use the macrobacterstartXLM fish less method.
