    Greetings all

    My tank is about 1 week away from completing its cycle. I'm also going on leave and only plan to add any LS to the tank when I return. Does anything need to be added to the tank once the cycle is complete while I'm away for 2 weeks?

    nope just let it run and make sure your tank sitter tops up the ro for the atu and clean the skimmer. That's it. you'll basically extend the cycle period by 2 weeks. taking your time setting up is the best thing you can do in a tank

    @butcherman, thanks

    Can I touch base with you in the new year to look at my lights?

    Yes I was going to suggest sooner but I think new year will be good. time is just running away from me at the moment before the holidays. Enjoy the holidays :merry-christmas-441
