Reefjunkye’s Nuvo 14 Peninsula

It could be rated for 10000000kg and I’d still worry. Mostly id be afraid of my dog knocking it off the shelf 😅
but the added floating Bar will be amazing! I’ve always wanted one in front of a window with a view. 
 

and gorgeous view again. I love Vancouver but yes if you don’t like the mist and rain it may not be your favorite (I do, I lived in southeast Alaska and love the rain).

Haha, the weight of the tank is about 200lb, I don’t think your dog will knock it down or perhaps you have have a Alaskan Malamute dog? 
Alaska is nice, been there couple of times with my folks on a cruise lol. I applied once for a job at red dog mine in Alaska, failed the interview lol...

All right, I am removing the rotten stuff and adding MB7 from brightwell. Finger crossed, hopefully this will jumpstart a bit.

I'd go the route you are going and don't judt force it,I feel like that is where a lot of people cause a tank to have a huge imbalance and for things to go south. 

 

 I think the MB7 will help a lot.

I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be ready by then. Especially with smaller tanks like we keep,they usually don't reach a mature stability level until about 8 months to a year anyways depending on how stable you can keep things and the quality of live rock or bacterial populations.

The churro thing (which had me dying btw lol) is for biological filtration and population. Awesome little invention. That is some good looking cheato though.

It'll happen,just give it some time. It may come at last minute. I gave up pretty much on testing during a cycle. Wait a month,do a wc and then test lol.

Don't get me wrong,you definitely need them. But while the cycle is happening I think people worry so much about this not happening or this happening they freak out. Just let it cycle and settle in and then after 3 weeks to a month,do a water change say 30-50% then test. 

 

 That is just me though.

Like the Coco Worm tubes, adds something extra to the scape. Puts me in mind of a Minotaur as well now...

is this means that I can start adding clean up crews or do I have to wait till ammonia and nitrite to hit zero?

It's usually best to wait for nitrite to hit 0 but the snail will probably be fine, I often use brown algae in small sysetems as the cue, too.

NH3=0.5

NO3=100!!(maxed) should I change water?

Got a bottle of the tiger pods as recommended by my LFS, now, do I start adding the pods now or after my tank is fully cycle? I couldn’t resist added like 2 caps into the chaeto chamber..

An aprx 80% water change wouldn't be a bad idea - you could probably add the pods after the WC.
