Why so little live rock?
I just transferred everything over from a very crowded 5gal pico last week.
that's OVER feeding, if your tossing 2 cubes of frozon food in there every day.
Cut back to "1" per every other day, you'll see they won't starve and the rest will clena up after them.
Don't see anything to laugh about. You are way overfeeding though. Can you post some pictures?
I am feeding 1/2 cube twice a day. So I am guessing I need 1/4 cube twice a day?
I wont be able to post any pics until tommorow. You guys are really a great help.
10 lbs is good lr for a 5 gal. For a 90, you need to step it up. But don't just throw uncycled Lr in there. Any good amount of Lr you add will most likely cause another cycle if it's not fully cured. How long was the 90 setup before you transferred everything over? Did you let it cycle for a month at least, if not more with almost no LR?
36 gal. it cycled for two weeks
1/4 of a cube every day. And don't stress if you miss a day.
My bad, I was reading IBMGEEKs sig on accident. But seriously 40lbs LR in a 36 gal would be better.
But 2 weeks, you may not have cycled enough yet. What are your ammonia and nitrite levels? Did they peak (at least to 20-30ppm) and go back down yet?
