got few questions.

should i start cycling the tank with raw shrimps even tho i got it from someone else tanks?

my return does more than drain, i was thinking to add T in my return and return it with a hose back to draining line into the sump.

What's that on the front of your tank. Shouldn't it be in the back or side?
