I'll be stopping after work to pick up my live rock and I have a couple of questions. I'd like to make things more coral friendly in this tank.....I seem to have limited areas to tuck corals into in my 72 gallon tank. My questions are:
1-can I stack rock up against the back of the tank? I'd like to have my creatures out front.
2-how difficult is it to drill live rock? I'm thinking of anchoring this rock using a rod (drill through the rock and thread the rod through the stacks of rocks).
3-is there a rule of thumb for selecting live rock? ie-mainly medium sized with a few smaller ones for fill-large for bottom and then small? suggestions?
4-several of the live rock pieces don't have any color to them.....my other tank has plenty...can I scrape off the algae and siphon it off and then dump the algae and water into the new tank? or is there an easier way to do this that I'm not thinking of?
Thanks very much for your endless help folks!
