I'll be mixing water and filling up my tank full of dry rocks / dry sand next week. Looking for somone in PDX (NE but not picky) who can spare a half cup of sand and a small (lemon size would be fine) chunk of rock to help me feed the cycling process. Will pay currency or trade for beverages. Thanks. Nate
Good morning, 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. Any thoughts? Nate (fwiw - My tank specs are in the build thread under nano's)
