This is gold. Posted by Mojoreef in a reply 8/16/03
SPS are as easy to keep as mushrooms. The only difference is that they are more delicate and will not live through most fluxuations in any parameters. This is kinda why we tell folks to let their tanks mature before attempting them. A Mature tank is not really an age thing, its a tank that has gone through its cycles. The original nitrogen cycle, its algael cycle, bacterial cycle and what I call the moron cycle . The moron cycle is when we constantly screw around with our tank, tweeking a new skimmer, or calcium reactor or the plumbig set up that doesnt quite work right and so on and so on. Once you get through the biological cycles and get your tank where you are not constantly screwing around with it you cn go for what ever you desire (based on your set up)
To true -- the bigggest problem is that the moron cycle can just go on, and on, and on...:)

The Moron cycle can last up to a year and even longer.

Maybe I'll give my water change(water)a little boost with some Turbo Cal. and some buffer, before I add it.

Dear Forum: Why is it snowing in my tank?

Well it looks like it is time to empty the skimmer cup. (Whoops)

Dear Forum: Just spilled a full skimmer cup of sludge into my sump.

As you know the list goes on and on and on. :)

The indepth information on this thread has really enlightened me to all of the extensive moron cycles my tank has gone through. It also has potential for nonsaltwater applications! Thanks Mojo :D
