    Well my fiance bought me a biocube for christmas because she knew ive been wanting a fish tank for a while now, and were planning on moving so I wanted to wait on my big one till we moved. Now I get to play with this 16 gal biocube . My plan is to buy a couple juvenile clowns, and a young rose tip anemone and by the time they are ready to be moved having the 250-300gal set up havent decided which yet. In the meantime thank you to Kevin from paradise for helping her out I have it up and running, and ready to start the cycling process. Think I finally figured out how I wanna do my rockwork

    Tested ammonia today, it seems to be dropping, I have to go get a new nitrate, and nitrite test kit tomorrow, I bought the seachem nitrate, and nitrite test and I dont think its working properly. Going to continue to test this week and may throw a couple snails in this next weekend to take care of some algae blooms. I have the lights programmed and usually turn them off before I leave for work and only let them run for a couple hrs, but was gone this weekend (so they didn't get turned off) which probably helped contribute to the bloom. I know every tank goes through a "ugly" fase after a cycle tho

    I will try not to disappoint I'm already ready for my bigger tank . Thank you I had snowflakes in my 75 gal that I had almost got a pair of them then I seen the black ices and was like nope gotta have those instead. They be transfered over to my big tank when I get it and replaced with whatever juveniles my son picks
