The system is a 125g with 55g sump...I have been getting crazy amounts of foam so the skimmer is not running until I can build a stand to get it at the right water level.

I only use RO/DI water for topoff and I started the system with natural seawater (I live in San Diego so I use filtered seawater from a local source ). I put defrosted shrimps in the tank to get my cycle started (begining of july) and have been taking readings ~2 times a week.

My LR was from a tank breakdown but he kept the rocks in unheated water for ~1 month before I got them so I dont think there was much bacteria left. I also bought "live sand" to help seed, whether or not it did any good is obviously debatable...

Anything else you need to know?

thanks for the help!!
