OK heres the list of the stuff I did already.

29 gallon tank

I put the top on with the 20 watt lighting

Then I filled the tank with water and aded red sea salt mix, my saltanity is 36 and gravity is 1.026

Then I waited two days

Then I put 30 pounds of gravel in plus my rio 90 power head and my tetra tech pf150 filter.

Now, I need to know how to get the cycle started. Do I just put food in the tank and let it rot? Get 2 cleaner shrimp? Or what?

thanks in advanced

OK no offence but I will not answer this question. because: 1 I don't get paid for anwering questions 2 I take time out of my day to answer people questions. the only reason I reply to some peoples post earlier than other is that when I am rushing in the morning I quickly check and anwser a couple posts ususally the top ones. my point is basically you can complain about services you pay for but not for the free ones. a handy appology and I will personally answer your questions!

A whiny reply from mettalman a few hours after the first post was removed from this topic by another moderator, so SLACKra's reply above now seems out of place. I'm keeping the topic here for now just to say to mettalman that I honestly think you should "go back to your other forums" as you mentioned. This is definitely not the right board for you...
