    Total noob in need of advice

    I went to look at some corals that were suggested. They looked very nice. The shop asked how was my alkerline, calcium, and magnesium levels... ummm help... I have no idea... can someone please tell me something about this and the easiest and best way to solve it if I have an issue??

    Today I changed my floss in the filter and water test still good... I am noticing my rocks turning brown in color.... is that part of the cycling process? Not sure what to make of it... Tomorrow I'm scheduled for partial water change..

    Question, I have two smaller live rocks that were previously cycled. CN I put them in the tank? Would it be of any benefit? Or should I just leave the tank alone and just keep doing what I've been doing until I'm done cycling the tank??

    Lula Yes you laid out some great advice. I am already following the daily water test. I intend on a partial water change. I will be driving to another show an hour away to see what they have in stock to help cycle my tank..... I took note of the ones your suggested. I will updated you on what i was able to get.... thanks

    Reefgoat, I understand what he is saying. It's just the way he says it. Not much can be done at this point. Tank is cycling mode and the fish have nowhere to go. Any thoughts on going forward? I'm scheduled to do a partial water change tomorrow...

    Wow, the hate in you is strong.... and if you did read my post you'll realise that my water change is scheduled for tomorrow. I've gotten some great advice on here but your pompous post has nothing to offer. Good day sir.

    1. Did you move the fish and the rock from the biocube into the new tank? Only the fish moved.... rocks from biocube turned really green and nasty... the CUC i purchased all died... wasn't working out... 2. You mentioned cycling rock in another tank and in buckets. What kind of rock did you use that you cycled in the other tank? How long and how did you cycle it? What kind of rock is in the bucket? How long and how are you cycling it? I got live rock from shop... the ones in the tank were taken from the shop's active tank with cycled rocks.... the other rocks are also live rocks but were cycling in a tub in the shop... I put them in a large bucket and they're cycling in that for now... 3. You said the fish would have died in the biocube. Why do you think this? based on how things turned really badly..... even water changes would only improve things for a week, the bio load from too many fish was too much for the tank. I just couldn't keep up. 4. Do you have bottled bacteria, like the brands I've mentioned before? I only have API quick start... and got a bottle of Prime for when things spike.. 5. Are you dosing Prime daily? no, dosing every other day with API 6. What are your ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate currently at? my levels are all at zero.... which makes me think the filter bio media was working too good... not sure... just a thought..... so i'm waiting for any level change.... tomorrow i will do a water change and add another load of API.. 7. How many lfs are in your area (within an hour or so drive)? the other shop is about 1 hour drive.... not so far... 8. Did you try posting on craigslist about the fish? no didn't do a craigslist post for fish... not a craigslist kinda area nor would i trust it.... way too many horror stories.

    only 3 clowns and the goby are in the tank... goby is always hiding out.... I will try to get all the fish to line up nicely in a bigger tank for a photo op. I have always only have 4 fish..... 3 clowns and 1 goby.... that has been said consistently in the postings...
