Pusztareefer Posted February 7 Share Posted February 7 Hi I’m igor Belgian truck driver,living in Hungary Back in 2020 I was on the forum as Highway reefer, I just started a Pico Tank, diamond shaped then. I upgraded that one to a waterbox cube 10 nano, in the meantime our house got sold, and we were finally moving to Hungary, to finish the work on our house and start live over there. When A Little critter decided to shake the world. Our move to Hungary was canceled for a while. We were able to stay at my mother's house for a while, where I was able to enjoy the nano for a while, eventually sold everything and spent a year in a camper. After a year of stress with unreliable contractors and a financial loss because of this. We finally got into our house in April this The actual plan was to settle in our new home in Hungary, and maybe start a new tank somewhere in the second half of 2023. I’m was on sick leave since September last year , so I started to unbox some moving boxes, and was surprised to find a complete aquarium and everything I needed to set up the basic’s Begin december, I decided to scape some dryrock to keep myself busy. After playing around with the rocks for a while, came up with something I liked, put it in the tank and looked at it for a week or so. I made some small changes to the scape, made some rodi water and finally added some tropic marine reef salt, didn’t have enough salt to get to a salinity of 1.025, I ended up with a salinity of 1.020. Living in Hungary comes with some challenges, to keep a reef tank . One of them is finding a lfs. After some googling found some, but all at least 1hr30 driving. I found some bacteria in a petshop, and started adding those. Just after Christmas, we had to go to the veterinary clinic with one of our dogs in the city, so we took the opertunity to visit 2 local lfs , where I found some aquaforest reef salt, I ramped my salinity up to 1.025 sg , added some miracle mud in the second chamber. Been feeding the bacteria, a pinch of fishfood every 2 days, lights are on from 12hrs till 20hrs. I was officially cycling now. This is going to be a nice lesson in patience. grtz igor 1 Quote Link to comment
