    Hi all,

    I'm tearing down my 124x50x55 tank, (which will be converted to a saltwater tank) and starting a new 90x45x45 cam tank. In my 4ft I have had soil/powersand for about a year, I will the first 3 inches, an inch above the PS and use that in the new tank, thereby transfering the bectaria/mulm. And I will use 2 new bags of 3L AS on top of the old soil.

    I will be doing EI in this new tank. what I wanted to know was as follows:

    1/ Shall I start full dosing of EI form day one?
    2/ Shall I keep the lights low for the first 2 weeks?

    I have followed the above procedure when I first did EI but without the AS/PS. Then when I got AS/PS I used ADA Ferts, which made me broke. So taking Tom's advise I am going to this time just use AS and do EI. Of course will full CO2 from the start. Lights will be 1 x 150w ADA MH and 1 x 36w 6,700K CF and 1 x 55w either 9,325K or 10K CF. CF is AHsupply.

    I just needed the above questions answered. I will be using Zeolite in the filter. My filter will be used as is, which is well matured already. So I am hoping I won't have too much of an NH4 spike.

    Thanks in advance.
