Hello,, I am new here too!! Just set up my tank this past week and am going through the cycling process now. I have a 60g long tank. Right now I have different kinds of damsels in the tank just waiting for my 3 months to pass. I did have a question though, since I am looking to put a bimac in this tank I have read that you should keep the tank at room temp. As of right now I do not have any live rock in there but I did use live sand and all my readings have been coming out good(except I just had my first ammonia spike) The numbers were: PH 8.0, salinity 1.026, Alk 4meq and now I getting the ammonia spike down. Soo, do I really need the live rock? LOL, if I could figure out how to attach a photo to this I would add my tank shot too..
