    Be Careful, you may introduce pests that you don't want: Aiptasia, GHA, and loads of others.

    Chuck in a frozen prawn and that will kick start the cycle.

    Meeting fellow reefers is always cool, any excuse to drink beer and watch fish :thumbup::thumbup:

    Am always willing to help Pete, must agree with Warr7207 on introducing unwanted nasties into your system with water from other reefers systems as it could end up giving you more problems down the line, and will end up making things harder than what they are to try and get rid of the unwanted. As Warr suggested throw a frozen prawn in the tank to kick start the cycle and then you can add Brightwells Micro-Bacter7 (This is a bottle of liquid that has the good bacteria in it).:thumbup:

    Mark remember take it slow and do not rush things, only bad things happen fast.
