sylocal posted a topic in Beginners DiscussionHi Folks, I'm currently in the cycling process of my Red Sea Reefer 170. This is my third tank. I started this tank with BRS Dry Rock, and live sand from BRS. I added a shrimp 3-4 days ago. It's beginning to disintegrate in my filter sock, still no ammonia readings. I added a small live rock and some chaeto yesterday. Before adding shrimp I began with Red Sea Mature Pro cycling kit however my readings using API & Salifert show to be 0 on everything Ammonia, Nitrate, Nitrite. This is after seven days... 77.3 *F 8.17 ph 34.2 salt 233 ORP Visually, the tank looks clean. No signs of diatoms. Where the $#%* is my ammonia haha?! Either this tank is cycling very efficiently and it's undetectable or Red Sea's Mature Pro cycling kit is pure snake oil. Prove me wrong. What to do next... Edit: I added the live sand and dry rock one week before beginning the cycling product from Red Sea.
I’m seriously considering upgrading my current Red Sea Reefer Nano(18x18x18, 21 gal display). the two replacement options are the Reefer 250 (35x21x20, 54 GAL display) and the waterbox 70 (24x24x22; 47 gal display). The demensions of the waterbox would allow me to use my currrent NanoBox Duo light without any supplementation and would allow more depth for aquascaping. The Reefer would allow for increased length and increased sump space, but would require an additional light purchase. All other equipment from my current aquarium could be used on either tank for the short term at least.
