    Atm colony

    Because I've already been cycling for four weeks I'm just gonna hang fire and wait til it's done it the natural way , seems a bit of a waste of money to buy the colony when I've already waited this long

    Atm colony

    I've been getting it tested at work, as I work in an aquatics shop, I'm fairly new to the marine side of things tho I'm more experienced in freshwater, I'm going to take a sample in when I'm next at work to see what's happening

    Atm colony

    Using live rock, don't have a skimmer yet but have two wave makers and I have Phosguard and Purigen , live rock has been in about three to four weeks now , another question is once I've used colony do I need to keep using it or can it be a one off?
