    Hi all,

    Just set up my first marine tank.

    60l with a hang on skimmer
    Dophin PS2012 skimmer.
    Hailea BT-400 for circulation and carbon.

    5.2kg of live rock
    9kg of RSK dead sand.

    I have dosed the tank with prime and stability.

    Is there anything else that needs to be done. Or just wait and let the nitrogen cycle start.

    I am only intending to keep 2 clown fish, 2 chromis, and 2 shrimp. No corals at this stage.

    Any input will be appreciated.

    Just be carefull with the chromis....the one might kill the other one...they a bit tricky to keep...most websites recommend keeping them in un even numbers....but that also not guarantees the success of them. They kill each other untill they feel happy. Thats just my experience with keeping chromis.
