i doubt it, prolly friday..... most businesses wont have it shipped if the order is after say 4 ot 5... im not sure tho. but you gotta also figure for how long it will take them to get the rock, pack it up and all, maybe another hour or 2.. by then its maybe 7 or 8... that seems kinda late =)


ill pull for ya tho lol

you really shouldn't have to add anything. There will be some die off on the rock so that'll kick your cycle off there. save the shrimp and eat it.

i agree you dont really need the shrimp as the die off is going to start the cycle up its self.. if it was me i prolly would add it maybe for a week ... till i saw nitrites ... im no expert or anything lol, but thats what id do i think .... tho i agree you dont need it at all, the rock will do it, and prolly speed the cycle up some to boot

you do want your rock resting on the bottom with sand around it.. if anything moves sand around or gets udner your rocks and shifts things around, your rocks could end up falling or scratching or cracking your glass or something very bad..
