that is great news Rick..very happy to hear that things are improving...especially glad to hear that your daughter's surgery went well.....
charge on my friend.....charge on..

ok..... a few suggestions.....i don't remember if you already did any of this so if i did just ignore it....well ; not all of

1. get the right substrate....crushed coral would be the easiest to get but the most expensive...from the LFS...or dolomite or crushed limestone...

2. lots and lots and lots of rocks...see if you local landscape supply place has any big pieces of limestone about the size of softball to a football....stack it almost to the top of the tank.....

3. leave the lights on a bit to build up some's good for the fish to munch on....

4. get a couple (hmmmm..maybe even 4 or 5)of 20 longs and set them up and cycle them with the above materials... you can kinda take your time with this part....

we'll talk about the rest later.....

if we ignore nature;maybe it will go away

10 gallon..nothing but air

10 gallon...just more air

10 gallon...stale air

just don't ask about the rest
