    I've had my aquarium up and running for about a month and a half now. I never had a typical cycle, but I've had a diatom bloom come and go, I've added a cleaning crew two weeks ago, and I'm getting some pretty nice coralline growth now. I set up a refugium with the tank from day one with a DSB...
