    Yes, it's very possible. Maybe time to add your first fish?

    IME, heaters tend to be under rated. You are close to the upper limit. Might need a new heater.

    As for the cycle, throw some fish food in there and let it rot. If you dont see an ammonia or nitrite spike, I would say its safe to add a fish. Just go slowly.

    Buy a fish that you really want. People often change their minds about those cheap damsels a few months down the road. ;)

    If you are thinking about clowns, you could get one of them. They are hardy just like a damnsel... they are related to them. And you wont have to worry about moving it.

    Rod's Food is a good all-in-one food. I use a variety of about half a dozen different foods -- krill, fortified brine, mysis, marine cuisine, emerald entree, plankton, daphnia, oyster eggs and roe.

    When did you fill the tank?

    Sometimes it takes a new tank several days to a week for all the fine paticles to settle out.

    You know I've been thinking about this for some time. What if you would siphon the water out of the back first and then the display to make up the water change and then use the siphon to put it back in instead of just pouring? If you hit the rocks with the siphon hose I would think it would reduce the sand kick up.

    That's why I use a small pump for that reason. If you get a small maxi-jet pump and use it to mix your saltwater for water changes, then you just put tubing on to the output and you can use that same pump to empty/fill your tank up and reduce the amount of crap you stir up.

    well the tank was already a little cloudy so i decided to do the water change and clean the filters to see if that would help clear it up, but it just stayed the same
