I also set up my test shelf with api test kit that I will probably toss after cycle, maybe. Hana testers extra regents. I order HR nitrate and copper testers from coralsfishandbeyond.com. I also have two each brine shrimp hatchery’s that will be moved to my spare room. Where I’ll set up this, phyto and copepod hatchery from Poseidon, and qt tank. I currently do not have a qt tank and Poseidon kit.
so far I’ve added my third batch of salt water at 75 gallons. Which puts me to the half way mark in my tank. So I’m thinking between the six bags of sand (may buy another) and 250 lbs of rock that I have approximately 50 gallons of displacement in the tank alone is just shy of 200 gallons.
im currently using my ehiem jaeger 125w heater in main DT until sump is filled so Helio will take over. I set my temp in the house to a hot and balmy 70 degrees so the little heater doesn’t work as hard.

Today I added another 50 gallons of water. At 125 gallons in display. I know this maybe boring info but it helps me keep track of the stats. So far I also have added 1 capful x3 of Seachem prime.

So I finally finished filling the tank today with another 52ish gallons. So that brings the grand total to 177 gallons of saltwater in a 241 gallon tank. I know such an odd number but that what planet Aquarium calls it. I added the last dose of Seachem prime. Don’t think I need it with RODI, but old habits die hard… So I’ve included some finally pictures before lights go off for cycling period. I’m sure it will take approximately 12-24ish hours for tank to hit temperature I’ve set it to, believe 78-78.6. Once temp is achieved I’ll add nitrifying bacteria.
