SG is at 1.023/1.024 right now.
as far as cycling, somtime this week, I'm planning on getting a couple mollies to let it cycle.

For a tank that size I'd stick in about a dozen or so. Just let them acclimatise to SW over an hour or two :smile:

Hey all, I posted a pic of my Ceph a few days ago and I wanted to know how I can put it on the left side like you guys have?
Thanks,
George.

Know-it-all:

If you put the mollies in a container with their freshwater when you first get them and use an airline tube to siphon water from the tank into it you shouod have good results. i even tie a loose knot in the airline tubing so that it is just dripping. That way it may take several hours for the salt water to fill the container. I will then remove water from the container several times (letting the drip continue) until it is the same s.g. as my tank. I have had great success with using mollies to cycle saltwater tanks this way. Patienence is the key. Good Luck!
