This is a great idea. I hope you keep posting regularly so that we can be "part of" the process.

Honestly, I have selfish reasons. I have been wanting to set up a 10 gallon reef, but really just don't have a spot for it. Hopefully watching the development of your reef will be enough to satisfy my urge!

Blue, I plan on adding them once my cycle is done. Maybe a few days after. Or, once we can make a trip to the LFS after the cycle. :)

Pasfur, thanks! I hope it is.

Sorry for no pics/params today. I was out all day and didnt have the time. Tommorow I will though. You guys can see my lovely green and brown on my glass. Not cleaning it just for you guys. :)

Well, I took some pictures before I cleaned off all the nasty stuff on my tank (and cleaned off the powerheads, heater, etc), but I will upload them later as my camera died on me.

I did a very small water change, maybe...3/4 gallon, but I had to top-off at least 1/2 gallon, so almost 1.5 gallons in the end. I only did the change because my SG was a bit high. Right now, I am loving my Params! Why? Because...

THE CYCLE IS ALMOST DONE!!! :)

Thats right! I obviously got cured rock, because I am looking at...

PARAMS:
-0ppm Ammonia
-0ppm Nitrite
-13-15ppm Nitrate
-8.0 pH (went up finally, still a bit low though)
-1.024 SG

I am looking at a possible CUC this weekend. Corals is definately not untill at least 2 more weeks.
