BTW, do you go to Nature Aquarium in Santa Monica? I love that huge square tank they have.
I go there all the time and I love that tank! I'm going to decommission one of my smaller tanks and I'm donating my inhabitants to the big square tank. Probably better they live there then in my old Fluval Edge anyhow.
I am not sure that you may not want to add any chemicals in your tank but I used the API Quickstart and seem to help my tank cycle a little faster. Still in the process but I have not had a huge ammonia spike since I started to use it. I made some large errors on the setup of my first tank but that is what makes this so fun.
Love the setup in your cabinet, wish mine look that cool. Love your scape and can't wait to see your plants grow in.
Thanks!! I'll have to check out what's in that stuff.
