I went with 100% dry rock on my rebuild. So far best decision i have made. No pests, coralline is taking to it well. I went to my LFS they gave me a few bristle worms some micro stars, ordered some pods from reefs2go.

What type of dry rock did you buy?

all Pukani from BRS. I cleaned the rock real good. Put it in the tank started the cycle thinking I was going to have a real big problem with PO4 and didn't. Now I am not saying I didn't have any I did have some. Got as high as .2 but nothing my GFO couldn't bring down, and once it was down to .03 stayed there. I do have algae on the rocks but its part of the normal cycle and its not bad. CUC and finishing the cycle will clear that up.

Greatly depends on where you get your live rock from. LFS and Craigslist are a no no for me. IF you can seed your tank from a trustworthy and established reefer via clubs or forums, I would go that route 10 out of 10 times.

i agree on those numbers, but some like to go all base rock, this way they have nothign to worry about with regards to pests but they will have to find other ways to seed things liek coraline algae and pods
