Dry rock is done to add probably better to go that route to avoid any mini cycles it will be colonized in a few months funny thing though when I set my tank up a few months ago I used half live half base and gha will not grow on the live rock but loves the base rock also I have a long spine sea urchin that loves gha and wont eat coral u could have 2 in a 110 probably

I am buying powerheads next week. Undecided if I want 4 Hydor 550 or two 1050's. The bonus to getting four is I can place two of them lower in the tank and not worry about a sand storm, if I get the two, I'll place them up top and aim them down slightly.

4 is the way I was leaning now ill figure exactly where to them. Hopefully that helps. I cut down the lights as of today. Also in doing research I found a few articles that suggest raising mg levels to kill off(starve) algae.

Anyone know if that magnesium rumor is true? Does raising it to 1750 really kill off hair algae?
