    I am nervous the bioload still gets a shock. I will be doing a week of bacteria to allow for the bioload to catch up.

    Thanks very much. Still a long way to go but atleast the tank is looking a bit more full

    Porcupine puffer still seems to be nocturnal. sleeps throughout the entire day but as soon as the lights go off his awake and eating. Wonder how long it will take him to adapt.
