You'll need SOME LR to seed the dry rock. You can buy RO water fairly cheap at a supermarket or your LFS.

That's true if you want to seed it for looks... But as far as filtration you can do 100% dry as long as you cycle with it.

Yes, also we are thinking about an aqua clear 70 for filtration, along with the protein skimmer and all the rock!!

AC 70 sounds good. You might not need a skimmer if you do your water changes.

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