Yeah I will, I have no plans of doing one now. Will just enjoy looking at others for the time being.

moved the rock a bit and added a few snails after a water test that showed my numbers heading further down and almost to 0!!!! very excited .. i thought the addition of this rock would have reset the whole process but it has not at all... also added some Cheato and now things sit for a few weeks while i research and plan my next steps....

here are some updated pix as well

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

its cyno but lets not forget while the "cycle is done the tank is not mature yet... also new additions such as high flow power head and my refugium are being added in the next few weeks.. as long as i keep up on it then all should be fine..

It crashed and everything died. Once I have the funds again I will probably try again with a better knowledge of what I am getting into(especially money wise) probably when I get settled somewhere since I don't see the point in a long term thing when I know I am going to have to move it in a year or two. And I am definitively going to use the 10 gallon AIO and move up from there when I do.
