    Looks great and your shrooms should do fine especially with good water changes .

    Day 10 update.

    Day 10 update.

    Tank was moved to dinning room on Sunday.
    Found a lot more green mushrooms..
    They seems huge now.
    Put a molly in on Friday to kick start the cycling process..

    I am still confused to how the mushrooms are growing and seem happy in a cycling tank.

    Btw.. I got live rock from a shutting down tank,never came out of the water and it came with the mushrooms as well.

    I have been doing special blend once every 2 days.

    Feeding the molly every day. 20180703_104243.jpeg 20180703_103810.jpeg 20180703_103819.jpeg 20180703_105635.jpeg

    Day 16 update.

    Sad news, gonasagran aka gonna aka the molly sadly pasted away early parts of Friday morning. Looked like he was sucked up into the filter pump.

    Water was tested Saturday and
    Nh4 < .25
    No2 almost 0
    No3 30ppm
    Ph 8.4
    Everything else is ok.

    I started building a 30ltr sump on Saturday..
    Was going to do 4 baffles but the tank is small so stuck with 2.

    This evening looks like the diatoms are starting to get lighter and there is more algea development.

    I will be getting my skimmer, refractometer and reactor this week... need to do a DIY overflow and install the sump..

    It's getting close now...

    Plan ( not all at once)

    Clowns x 2
    Gonyx1
    Flame angel

    Gsp
    Frog spawn
    ...

    Need a clean up crew as well...

    So let me know when you guys think I should start with the live stock?

    10 cemermony for gona will be held at the residence this coming Sunday.

    The added sump wil be great idea more space in tank and it won't look so bad with all that equip in display tank. And what I've also noticed is the sand is getting pushed around from the flow how many turn over does the tank have?

    What ideas have you got for the DIY overflow? Is it not viable to have the tank drilled before you add livestock?

    So going to use a 2 inch (50mm) pvc for the ware and then a 1inch for the actual piping.

    Return will be a 20mm flexi pipe from a 1000l/hr pump.

    Drilling is not a real option as I'm not sure if this glass is treated.

    U gonna add a cap to the vent pipe? Think it helps with the syphon nd reduces noise as well.

    Only reduces noise.
    Not good for the restart incase of a power outage
