I'll be mixing up water in the next day or two, and adding seed rock and sand to my tank hopefully this weekend. I'm considering holding off for a few weeks to let my tank cycle on its own prior to adding a protein skimmer.
My thoughts are that the initial ammonia -> nitrite -> nitrate cycle needs to happen unencumbered... I would time the addition of a skimmer to coincide with adding livestock a few weeks down the road.
(fwiw - My tank specs are in the build thread under nano's)
I'm doing a poll to see how many people want a frag tank at "NW Frag Festival Is Coming - October 14th"
Be aware, this would be at your own risk for items that are stolen, left behind, acquire reef pests etc...
Poll closes in two weeks.
I have a few corals for sale, trying to make room. Sorry I know the pictures are not the best!
