    Mick's Aquaone Minireef 160

    Current FTS 21st May 2019 ***************** Hi I live in Austraila and have been out of the hobby for a few years, but my wife secretly purchased me a new tank as she knows I missed it, The Tank is an Aqua one Minireef 160 its main tank is 90cmx45cmx45cm, sump is 60cmx38cmx40cm and rodi storage is 16cmx38x40cm So far all I have done is fill with ro/di water added sand and salt, added in a Aquael Reef Circulator 2500 power head and aquaone auto top system I have ordered 18kg/40lb of Caribsea life rock shapes, going to try Bacteria House Bio Block in the sump and 3FT DSunY Marine LED with wifi for main light
  3. I am starting a 20 gallon long reef build and want to use the caribsea life rock instead of live rock. I have had issues in the past with live rock from my local shop and wanted to start off clean with this one. I am using 20 lbs of that and 20 lbs of caribsea live sand. Has anyone used this rock before and if so what is the cycle like? Do I need to add any bacteria or is the "painted on" bacteria good enough? Below is the equipment I have purchased. Please let me know if you have any suggestions on something I am missing. If I do a hang on the back protein skimmer do you have any suggestions? 20 long tank fluval aquaclear 50 (2) Koralia nano 425 Heater 24-36" current usa orbit marine LED 20 lbs life rock 20 lbs live sand
  4. I'm getting my first tank tomorrow, a 16G (60 litres = 15.85G), and I plan to do fishless cycle with dry rock (I'm a penniless PhD student and I don't want hitchhikers). I've watched tons of video tutorials about cycling a reef tank, but I'm still not clear if cycling with dry rock is the same as cycling with live rock with the exception I need to add the bacteria and the ammonia source. If someone has some experience with fishless cycles with dry rock such as CaribSea LifeRock, could they share their wisdom and tell me if this is how I am supposed to go about it, and possibly correct the wrong steps? (I'll be testing with Salifert tests plus an ammonia badge) Tank = Empty Add a flat layer of sand [1 inch to 1.5 inch thick covering the full bottom of the tank - sand comes with the tank kit] Add Carib Sea Life Rock for a total of 18 lbs (8 kgs) [This brand of dry rock has bacteria spores inside] Add Saltwater [premixed or mix in the tank?] Add Bacteria-in-a-bottle, specifically EasyLife EasyStart [American brands are difficult to find in Southern Europe, and this product has good reviews] Add fish food daily (ghost feeding) until ammonia reaches at least 5 ppm [I'd dose pure ammonia, but adding fish food seems less likely to end up in extremely high ammonia] Ammonia over 5 ppm, plus nitrifying bacteria, means nitrite spike. If nitrite=0, raise ammonia back up to 3-4 ppm, and add bacteria, until I get a nitrite reading. After nitrite, I'll get nitrate. At what level/PPM of nitrite should I start testing for nitrate? When nitrite tests 0 ppm and nitrate is spiking (over 5 ppm? 10 ppm?), do a water change (5%? or 10%? more?) to lower nitrate to 0-10 ppm. Tank = cycled, add fish. Sorry this is very long-winded, but I couldn't find a step-by-step procedure to cycle with dry rock such as CaribSea Life Rock, bacteria-in-a-bottle, and fish food. Thanks a lot if someone can help!

    CaribSea Rubble Zone question

    I bought this CaribSea Rubble Zone to attach frags to and something just dawned on me... I'm wondering if this is going to cause a cycle by putting these directly in the water without turning these into live rocks. Ive had traumatic experiences adding live rock to my tank from other people's tanks, but the dry rock like on BRS I know you're supposed to "cycle" or "cook" by letting them develop their biology before adding to the tank. If I glue a frag onto one of these and place it in my 20g, what kind of reactions can I expect? PH imbalance? A complete crash? Any input is always welcome and much appreciated
