    Ok so my new set-up is a 130litre tank which I intend to have as a reef tank.
    I purchased 20kgs of Fiji live sand and 15kgs of 2 year cured live rock and all water pre mixed.
    I am running a beta 1600uv external canister filter with built in skimmer 2 x power heads.
    And lighting is white/blue mixable led in total 150w.
    I have been cycling for 3 weeks with lights out.
    No algea growth and current parameters as follows:
    Alkiliity 10
    Ammonia 0
    Phosphate 0
    Calcium 380
    Nitrite 0
    Nitrate 10ppm
    Salinity 35
    Temp 79
    My question please is how am I doing?
