    Hey I am having a little hard finding out my feeding with the American cubes

    I have

    2 clown (small)
    2 fritmani (small)
    3 cromis (small)
    1 blenni (small)
    1 yellow tang (small)
    2 fire fish goby (small)

    All in all 10 small fish, I think I feed about 1/2 cube a day.

    And I'll think I'll be feeding about 1-2 in the future?

    Dos it sound right?

    Oh yeah is a 450liters with 250 liters sump.

    Yeah I would say 1 cube/day would be plenty for those fish, beside the Yellow Tang they aren't going to get very big. You can add in 0.25 to 0.5 sheet of Nori for the tang 2-3 times/week also and not impact load by that much.

    2 cubes would be a lot, unless you started getting a large coral load and were also target feeding them or broadcast feeding the tank.

    Sexy beast, LOL. thats funny!!!!!!!!! You would be very surprised how far you could push your L2 with a little more light period if you had to due to more load from fish or coral. Those LED's scrubbers are pretty amazing. I think we under rate them due to the figures posted on the Santa Monica site years ago. Any way you have a great product and it will serve you very well even if you push it a little if you have to in the future.

    Sometimes is takes 4+ weeks. My 75G took almost 6 weeks to come around with some good green.

    Oh! I thought you meant waiting on growth, LOL. While you wait be sure you have a good scraping device like an old credit card or plastic paint scraper and also a good brush with STIFF bristles, I like the tile grout brushes that look similar to a tooth brush design.
