Advice: Patience, Patience, Patience! DO NOT CUT CORNERS! This will only cost your more money in the long run. You will be better to save a little money and do the job right before it kills or damges your livestock. Pay special attention to your parameters. Dont believe the hype of some companies claiming to eliminate nitrates and such. These are temporary fixes that will create a bigger issue later. Do your homework. The more you research and test within your own tank, the more you will learn about fish, coral, suppliments, parameters, lighting etc the better you will be off.
