Default New Tank

Hello everybody, just got a 36 gallon bow front, with a BAK PAK bio-filter, Lunar Aqua light by coralife, 40lbs live sand. I set up the tank yesterday, no live rock yet, wanted to get my spec. gravity and temp in te right places before adding. It has been a long time since I have set a tank up, this is one of my largest so far. Water in the tank is still a little cloudy but starting to clear, I am just running the filter at this point o circulate water. Any suggestions?

Are you going to have a reef tank or is it going to be a FOWLR?

Welcome,

I would definately add the liverock ASAP as it not only will help in the cycle but will make it quicker to satablize the tank. If you have uncured liverock it will also have to cycle as when the rock is transported you have die off of Bateria and organisms that live in the rock, unless you are buying cured rock from you LFS (Local Fish Supplier).

most of the time as the protien skimmer breaks in the bubbles will slowly diminish, good luck ...i wish i had a new aquarium....hehe

Default Sounds Cool

Sounds like it will be real cool, when finished...Can you post some pics when you are done? Let me know if you have success with the BAK PAK bio filter. Cheers.
