What type of fixture how many bulbs. How big is tank.
Ok i know this is old but i'm just starting my tank.When I say live sand. I mean sand from an actual tank with living organisms. It will add good bacteria and organisms to the sand bed. Technically the sand we buy in bags in alive, but not really. Lol. Just a single large raw shrimp tie a string around the tail and once you get a ammonia reading remove it. Continue ghost feeding, do a water a change (20%), test and see if the ammonia has gone back down to zero. Once the amonia spikes and comes back down, the tank has cycled.
Then the real fun begins.
What kind of fish do you have in mind?
Ok...will do that! Thank you!I've moved my freshwater tank a few times, but never my saltwater. Sooo I might be wrong but for FW I filled up 5g buckets with the water from the tank and scooped the fish with a net. 15 minutes isn't that long a drive for them to be in a changed environment as long as you use the same water from your aquarium.
