  1. Hello everyone. I have had my 12g up for 7 weeks and over the last 2 weeks I have finally started to add some corals and I added a maroon clown. Let me know what you think or what else I can get that might look good as this is definitely still a work in progress.
  2. RO Water?

    I have a 12g Nano Cube and I just set it up about a week ago. I used tap water to start and I have started the cycling process with some live rock. I really didn't want to buy an RO unit so I asked my LFS and they said they sell it there. For no salt added it is $1.00/gallon and with salt added it is $1.50/gallon. Realizing I wouldn't need much for water changes would any of you recommend buying RO water? Thanks in advance. Jason
  3. 1 Day old 12G nano cube - Need advise

    Great. Thank you so much for the advise. I will try to find some good LR with the the week or so, I wanna get this thing going so I can wait out the cycle period.
  4. I just bought a 12G nano cube DX. I have only had it up one day and have been reading so much this board that I think I am going a little crazy. Actually there has been some great info here. Anyway, it has been running about 24hrs now with 20lbs of aragalive sand and the salt water. I changed the pump from the stock to a maxijet 600 for better water flow. I then put he stock pump in the display area to keep water flow even better. The funny thing here is the darn thing stopped working about an hour after I did that (POS). LOL. Okay here are my questions for now: 1.) The water started out very cloudy due to the sand but it is much better today. It is not exactly clear (slightly cloudy) and I was reading on here that purigen may help. So my first question is would anyone recommend this? 2.) My next step is to start finding a beautiful piece LR for the center display. I want it to be an awesome piece so I am probably going to take some time looking around town for the 'right' rock. If I find a piece tomorrow is that too early or if I find piece in two weeks, is that too late? 3.) Is there anything else I can do now to prepare the tank? i.e., adding any chemicals, treatment of water, filter additions, etc. I know I will have many more questions but this should do for now. Thanks in advance. Jason
