I'm glad you guys seem to like it. I'm new at this...it's my first tank so be gentle. I slowed down water changes to once a month because my calcium was high and I started more fresh water top offs. Parameters seem to be normal now. So far the tank hasn't been stocked it's 20 months old and is basically a pile of live rock.

20 months old and nothing but live rock?


why exactly are you even worried about testing for calcium, then?

I will be adding coral soon and I just want parameters to be normal when I do. Also the LFS told me my PH is low because my calcium is high?

The two tanks circulate together so I don't have to change water in the top only clean the glass and siphon detrius off the bottom of the tank. I have one cable looped from the attic down through the shelf then back up into the attic. It's very clean looking all the hardware is in the attic. I also had to fasten a board to the wall attached to the studs in the wall. Everything is routed and painted to match, again to make it look as clean as possible.

I plan to, are there any repercussions from waiting so long? Also, I had an outbreak of purple filamentous algae I've been trying to get rid of before adding coral. LFS never had the snails I wanted so I finally bought some online. They seem to be working.

Very cool. No, there are no problems with waiting this long, just really weird that you took so long.

Waiting such an extended period of time is definitely a good thing- most people just don't have the patience to do so when a month will suffice.

No, I at one time I thought about buying a tiger tail but wasn't sure if it was a good idea.
