FINALLY! I decided =)

Hi All,

 

Well i finally broke down and spent this weekend setting it up. I got a BioCub 8 with 12lbs of LR, 5lbs of LS, and cycled water from the LFS. I watched it all weekend and it cleaned up perfectly.

 

I added a feather duster and a small ground crew. Since this is at my desk at work(literally 11 inches from my elbow) i am monitoring everything very closely....if it does start to cycle and the water becomes toxic then i will make some water changes and take my new friends to the LFS for safekeeping till the cycle completes. So far so good tho =)

 

It looks pretty desolate at this point but im hoping to add some Zoa's as soon as im confident the water is safe.

 

Does anyone have a suggestion on a good small fish that is out of the normal...an ornamental fish? I like clowns but they are a dime a dozen nowadays...

 

Here is my first attempt at Photobucket images:

hey dew, congrats on the new tank. All tanks go through some kind of cycle, so i would try to get that stuff to someone else for safe keeping for a few weeks otherwise, you probably wont have much left when you are done

 

for an 8g tank you could go with a shrimp goby, theyre pretty cool. good luck with it

Wish I could keep one at work, that would be the coolest thing! I'm sure I would be less grouchy thus offer better customer service. Congrats!

Well if you could add maybe a small soda machine and a playstation you'd be totally set !

I wish the AC was more stable at my office (that's why I lost my first reef tank that was at my desk - it baked)

 

Nice tank - I love my BioCube 8 as well. I have a goby/shrimp combo in mine (I always see the goby but not the shrimp :( )
