    Once the water is finished cycing what is the next step? Not sure if I must add fish first and then CUC or the other way round. How many of what CUC will I need for a 700L tank? Any advice will be welcome. Also where in the Cresta area is best to shop for livestock?

    Lyfestyle would be your best bet for stock. Or jungle aquatics in fourways

    And once you are sure your parameters are stable add a basic clean up crew.. not to much algea eaters though since you won't have alot of algea in your tank
