How do I tell when my tank cycle is over?
Have some brown on my glass and all that is in my tank is some live rock with lights a heater and circulation? when should I add my clean up crew?how do i determine when i can add fish and corals?:-?
The algae is a diatom bloom, IMHO. That will represent the end of your cycle. It's now time to add your CUC.
thanks for great answer it is always nice to be sure
what are your parameters?
what do you think
My calcium is about 420-440 ppm and i havent gotten the supplies to test the other params so i about a week or so i should have the equipment and will updat the thread. i am on a very tight budget so i wanted to know what anyone thought of my ebay $95 RO/DI. also any good websites that have some resonable prices on powerheads, supplaments, and any other equpment. what i do know is that i will need a TDS meter so any good sites to buy one of those for pretty cheap would be great. thanks 1F2F for all the help i really apreciate it.:-D
the only way to tell if its good is to use a TDS meter. i got an inline one that reads in and out from a group buy from my local reefing club.
my parameters are really good, PH - 8.4, ammonia - 0, nitrite - 0, nitrate - 0, KH - 10, phosphate - 0. i added some turbo snails and blue legged hermit crabs.
