    Basic Cycle Question

    I was definitely not expecting the wealth of information to come from my question. Thank you so much for the info. I’ve taken a break from testing every day, to every third day, just to help with my impatience. Hopefully I can last the whole time. Thank you again!!

    Basic Cycle Question

    Thank you for your very insightful answer. That is what I was afraid of, me trying to rush things. I will sit back and be patient, and enjoy the changes. It’s just so stark with the white rocks and black sand.

    Basic Cycle Question

    I know this is a very basic question to ask, but I’m at a loss. I have started a new Biocube 32 with about 30 pounds of MarcoRocks and 20 pounds of Tahatian Moon Live Sand. The fish less cycle was officially started 4 days ago. I started with Dr. Tim’s Ammonium Chloride dosing up to 4ppm and adding the recommended dose of Seachem Stability. I have since followed the Stability dosage info for the last 4 days but have yet to see ammonia move from 4ppm, or nitrites show up at. PH is 8.0, SG is 1.026. Everything I’ve read about using Stability says I should have nitrites by now. Am I being impatient? Does anyone have experience using stability to start a tank cycle? Thanks for the help and info!!

    Biocube 32 Bottom Trim

    That’s just what I did. They told me the same thing, and also that they will send me a replacement. Awesome service! Thank you for your help!

    Biocube Trim

    I’m not sure if this is frowned upon, but I posed this question in the beginner section and then thought it Best belonged here. I just received my new Biocube, and after setting it on the stand and loading some equipment in I noticed a small, almost hairline crack in the bottom trim of the aquarium. The glass and silicone are in perfect shape under and around it. So exactly how important is that piece of trim to the structure? Am I doomed if I fill it up? Sorry for the potato quality picture. The crack is about 3.5 inches long and just barely grabs a fingernail running across it.

    Lighting a 58 gallon Oceanic

    That was kind of my thinking from the research I have been doing. I am just not very informed about the penetrating power of T5 bulbs. Thanks for the reply. Would clams be ok all the way to the bottom or would I be limited to the top half with them as well?

    Lighting a 58 gallon Oceanic

    Really? No one has any experience with the TEK fixtures and a 58 gallon tank?

    Lighting a 58 gallon Oceanic

    I am setting up a 58 gallon oceanic aquarium (36x18x20 I think) and was wondering if a TEK 4 bulb fixture would be enough light to keep pretty much anything including clams and sps. I am not sure because of the height of the tank. Thanks for the help.

    Biocube 8 Gallon 3.18w Upgrade

    So, I had a ballast go out on my biocube 8 and instead of getting a warranty ballast, I just upgrade them with the nanotuners upgrade kit. I love them now. Along with the kit, I got a 3.18w heatshield and an 18w retro and now I am trying to find directions as to how to get three bulbs in the stock canopy with the moonlights still able to be seen. Is there anyone out there that has done this and could you point me in the right direction to get help. Thanks so much.

    Petco Dollar per Gallon Sale 2009

    Thanks so much for the info. I hope they include tanks over 29 gallons this year. If anyone hears something definite for TX, please let me know. I will keep my ears out for some good sales there too.
  14. Does anybody know when the dollar per gallon sale at Petco is going to happen this year or when it happened last year. I am looking to upgrade to a 40 or 50 gallon and the more money I can save the better. Thanks for your help!!
