Did a 25% water change today and took some readings afterwards:

Ammonia: 0,0

Nitrite: 1,0

Nitrate: 35-40~

 

Slowly getting there. 🙂 Going to start using RODI water to get that alkalinity down.

Can happily report now that both fish in quarantine now eats with ferocity, crushed flakes. Really awesome food in a reef tank I've come to realize, the water flow makes sure it flies around instead of settling on the bottom or somewhere else, meaning most if it gets a chance to be eaten.

Hey, very nice looking setup! I'll be watching to see what you do with this, especially in terms of coral. I've got a 10g system that's been up for about 2 months, but I won't be adding coral for a while yet. 

 

I have Omega One Marine flakes w/ Garlic, and my firefish likes it a lot. The water circulation keeps it in the water for a long time, lets him pick at it for a while. 

 

Also, what kind of kingfisher is that in your profile photo? It's beautiful!

Going to wait another 3-4 weeks probably, wait for cycle to finish then add the fish, then let them settle a bit before adding the first coral, which is probably going to be a toadstool or some kind of leather coral.

 

As for the kingfisher I don't know what actual kind it is. 🙂 But it is my favorite bird and they are quite common close to where I live. I recently even bought an oil painting of one. 🙂
