    Thats the one mate, there will be no fish or other livestock added for several weeks. I just need to get the corals out of the 180 as soon as.

    I find it's always tricky to aquascape with just rock as it looks a whole lot different with the coral in there as well. IMO leave LR as a minimum to leave as much space as possible for growth/coral additions Big Thumbs Up

    Ammonia 0 ppm
    Nitrite 0 ppm
    Sg 1.025
    Temp 26.2oC
    Mag 1330ppm
    Cal 420ppm
    Nitrate 0 ppm

    Not sure Im going to see a cycle on this one, the LR was out for only 30 mins. I have already seen several large coepods on the LR.

    I will test again on Monday morning and if all is good I will move the coral over. The acan in the new tank seems fine.

    A few Acans in. I will move all stock on Monday as the 180 now has no sump filtration and I would rather get them out as soon as.

    They seem to be enjoying the extra room and having a stretch out
