Hi Guys, about a 5 weeks ago, i started on a small marine tank. After about 3 days of cycling i had put in my first coral. this was a green polyp, a few days later, i had put in my first fish - a damsel, few days later i had put in a chromis, a week later i put in a pair of clowns, and few days later i put in a bicolor angel. I started the tank by making my on RO water and used marine salt. I bought dead rock that had been exposed to air for several years. I had placed about 5kgs in the tank and about 3kgs in the sump. All this time I was advised by the "experts" in the game that I did not give it adequate time for the cycle to start and end. All but one told me to proceed and advised how i should go about establishing my tank. Today i had done the following test, PH: 8.2; Nitrite was between 0 and 0.05; Amonia is 0, Nitrate is low, water clarity is crystal clear. Fish are swimming fine and eating very well. I am now looking for some colourful corals and anemone for the clowns. I prefer to pay and take rather than been delivered. So if you guys in Durban willing to sell please PM me. Thanks guys!!!
