Begining Filtration Questoins

Recommended Posts

I just started my cycle this past weekend with 30 lbs of live rock in my 24g NanoCube and wanted to know what others have done with their filtration when they started their cubes and what people might suggest doing with each chamber and if they used all their sponges, carbon, etc... Thanks,

Take out sponges, bio balls, and ceramic rings.

 

Put the carbon on top of chamber 3 so that the water goes through it right before it goes into the tank.

 

Filter floss in chamber 1 to capture deterius(sp?)

 

Many turn Chamber 2 into a mini fuge with a light and cheato.

 

GOOD LUCK AND :welcome: to NR.com
