    Hi,

    I have made a remote dsb, 50cm,40cm, 15cm, 100L and would like to plumb it into my nano, should i start cycling it first with sand from the current dsb or can i just add it? will it cause a cycle?

    on top the dsb is a LR stand which i am placing 20kgs of LR, this will be closed and no light at all as i am trying to create a cryptic zone.

    any do's and dont's?

    my reference
