looking for a consensus from the three or four people who read this. when is it safe to add a zoa or a GSP to this tank seeing as i have been stable for two weeks now? i was thinking a month out for first addition. is that correct? i have read that the GSP is incredibly resilient, should they be a first addition for me? i have a good rock buried in the sand to put them so they do not spread too far. how would i searate them from the frag plug? just a exacto knife and super glue to the new rock? i am thinking two more weeks and i may try. that will give me five weeks on the cycle, and three with CUC member.
BTW, four only four real readers, almost 1700 views is bad ass! not sure how many times i look at it though, just praying that someone will look and offer anything. "hey, you suck", " hey, nice start!", "hey, go back to FW".
also, redstang, i have seen others concerns that the six line will eat feather dusters. this make me nervous as i have a couple that are great looking that i want to hang on to. what are your thoughts?
I was given a freebie Paly rock about 1 month in and it thrived. Softies don't seem to be as particular about their water as lps and sps from what I've read. Though I was given a monti cap a few days after the paly's and it's grown well since day one too. Basically I'd say you're safe to get a cheap frag of something to put in there. But I'd only put a cheap one in
As for readers, it is disappointing, I think many people are like us, just getting into the hobby and looking for ideas. Unfortunately when many get their tanks up and running they only come back to update their thread. It's why I make an effort to stay involved even if I only have 6 months experience in the hobby. It only takes 10-15 minutes per day to read through new threads, post something, and then subscribe. Doesn't even have to be every day.
First I've heard that six-line's eat feather dusters. I can confirm that mine does not. Maybe if they get hungry enough?
