    No worries.


    I will be posting a build thread in the next couple days on it.

    For the cycle I'm doing the Dr. Tim's One and Only cycle with Ammonium Chloride starter.

    Ok... have you done one with Dr. Tims? How long of a cycle are you expecting? How many tanks have you setup? I guess I can wait till you do the build thread!?!

    Tropic Eden reef flake. I used about half bag initially for about 1-1.5". Now I'm down to .5" (assuming the clowns don't move it around, spoiler, they always do). Dry pukani rock. It soaked in a tub on the back porch for ~6 months before I used it. No heater though, occasional water change with dirty tank water.

    When I setup the tank I used Red Sea's Mature Starter (3 weeks dosing bacteria/ammonia). Since then I've occasionally thrown in a vial of Prodibio Biodigest.

    edit: had to add one nice pic, the mystic sunset monti (thanks @reeftopia!)

    : Looking good!! Love that monti and the nem!! And the clowns, whatever it's awesome.

    What kind of equipment are you running?

    Maybe I can just ship it in a bottle or something.... I have to say I am horrible about shipping!!
