Here's my setup:
55 Gallon Tank Fish Only
75 Seaclear Wet Dry Sump
Seaclone 100 Protien Skimmer
Jebo 13 watt UV Sterilizer
Water: 78 Degrees
Artificial Rock with several hiding holes
Its been up for a week. I put in Cycle by Nutrafin to help cycle to the tank faster. The petstore lady said that this would help cycle the tank in a week or so. No Fish in it yet. I plan on putting in a Black Volitan (4") for now.
I have a couple of questions:
1) Would it be beneficial to put some copepods or mini starfish in the sump or tank ?
2) Any recommendation on tank mate for the lone lionfish?
3) Is the protien skimmer necessary with the wet dry and the uv sterilizer?
4) How long should I wait before putting in any fish?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks a bunch.
