Ok guys i have been running my nano cube 24G for about almost 3 months and i was using instant ocean mix with RO water. i dupmed all the water out of there exept for about maybe 5 gallons and went to LFS and got catalina island water i filled it up there are no fish in there but i have 5 turbo snail i took out but i will put them back in as soon as the water is back to 77-79 degrees. ok the salinity for catalina water is 1.025 i always ran my tank at 1.023 is there any difference for the fish. is a salinity that high good for the FOWLR. After one hour i checked the water parameters and the PH was at 8.4 Nitrite was 0 and nitrate was 20 Alk was 300 i think. would the tank take longer to cycle now since the mechanical has all the bacteria and all???
