    No skimmer or sump.
    Did not use one on my 100 L either for 18 month.

    Found this worm after trying to clean the hammer that I nearly killed last night. Is it a spaghetti worm? This one has red stipes others before were always white.

    Looks great! 2 months to cycle? Did you use any nitrifying bacteria or did you just leave it to go completely naturally?

    Thank you used Microbe-lift special blend but my artificial rock took about 2 month to cycle and seeded with media from old filter.

    Wow, I have just restarted my 600l after a year and started the cycling on Sun. Using SeaChem's Seed and already seeing quick results! Using artificial rock and dead sand this time around (way too many hitchhikers in my old system)

    Thats what I also used all dry, but the ammonia did not want to drop, but I did feed the tank frozen shrimp. Wanted to make sure there was enough bacteria before I moved fish over.
