I was merely letting you know that there's no need to post the same thread in 6 forums.

As to your question, well...I don't actually see any questions. So, ummm, nice tank and good luck....????

I posted this in the other thread that you posted this text in, but it sounds like you're on your way on the 29g tank. If you have questions, we'd be happy to help out and offer advice.

If you're asking for general nano-keeping advice, my first recommendation is always to go slow, and don't overreact to things that happen. Second is that tank maturity is really important, but yet really hard to achieve. It's tough to not be constantly playing with your tank the first 3-4 months, but after 6 months, the tank levels out, gets much more consistent, you'll understand it better, and things tend to be more smooth at that point.

The first 3-4 months (even 6 months) are tough, and things are still swinging around due to immaturity (both on your part and the tank's part; Including when experienced reefkeepers start up new tanks), so be patient and enjoy the ride. Sit and appreciate all of the little complex living organisms taking part in your tank ecosystem.

And lastly, don't hesitate to ask questions, that's why we're all here. To ask, discuss, and learn.
