I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

So would it be alright if we bought the salt friday, and the live rock friday or saturday? Then used only a small 10g filter for the next week, and the bad powerhead? Then got the rest of the necessary stuff after that/for christmas? It would stay cycled with the lr right?

Hmm not feelin the love...lol!

Well guys, wev got 56$ so i think we will buy the live rock and salt mix friday-sunday. Do you still have to do PWC's in the beginning of the cycle? Or the end only?

PWCs should be done during the cycle on SW on at the end of the cycle unless you plan on doing a soft cycle.

I was told not to do a PWC till the tank was cycled. then do a 50% water change after its cycled. please correct me if I am wrong about this.
