Best would be to find a reefer in PE. Who can look after his livestock. Then let the tank cycle using additives. Like seachem stability and many others.

First go have your water tested. Most LFS should be able to help you. Go to Coastal aquariums. Then look at adding chemical filtration to the filters. Seachem have a wide range of products you can use.

The key would be to test for Ammonia it should be 0. Ammonia burns fish gills.

@Cassies we are not trying to be funny, just trying to save you some money and help you do it the right way so you can enjoy your reef. I personally started in January this year, and although I also wanted to have the tank as beautiful as quickly as possible I cycled the tank for a little over 2 months before I added anything, I am sure some guys here even cycled for more than that before adding any livestock

And other parameters?
When you started the tank did you see it go through a cycle?
