that is a lot to add in at once, let it settle before adding anything else, the bacteria haveto increase to cope with the new bio load otherwise the ammonia will wreak havoc, do a decent water change at least once a week(sorry for being bossy )

Added the turbo's and hermits about 2 weeks ago
Added the Boxer Shrimp 1 week ago
Added the Goby and Polyps This week.

Tank never had much of a cycle used LR and water from an existing setup.

Currently doing a 10% water change a Week.

All parameters are fine.

Ph is a little low but will buffer a little next week.

What is "prime" and how does it work? left alone the liverock will sort ammonia out in it's own time. Also - have you measured your water parameters as you went adding life-stock? How much kg's of live rock do you have an how deep is your sand bed exactly?

Good one Kanga. Nice and neat setup Carne, but make sure about the cycle period, even if you've used water from an existing setup. Not nice loosing livestock as well as money down the drain. Patience is the name of this game, and if you find any, please give me some too....LoL
