Hello all, Please do not tongue-lash me for this question: I have a tank that has been cycling for a little over two weeks now. It currently contains 25lbs of live rock (which I have been using to cycle it), and fine aragonite sand. I have mechanical filtration, and a remora skimmer. The water in the tank is entirely from my 75g reef tank (i.e. conditioned, mature water). The only reason the tank is now in the cycle process is because of the live rock. Parameters are as follows: ammonia - 0 nitrite - .8mg/L nitrate - between 3-10mg/L temp - 78 (higher than normal to accelerate cycling) Now, I realize that my tank is not fully cured. Although, the nitrites have been falling, and overall the system is approaching completion. I've perused this site and have noticed that the "gold standard" is to wait three months for an octo tank to cycle/establish itself. Now, here's my question: what do you speculate would happen if I put a bimac into my setup three days from now (assuming nitrites would be nearly zero, and the nitrates fairly low)? Are octos more sensitive to water quality than fish? I can't imagine waiting three months, especially considering I used established water from my reef tank. Thanks in advance--just trying to learn more about cephs.
