The shrimp didn't smell. But I'm now wondering if a pure ammonia shot would have made things go faster.

While im aquascaping do i have to consider my filter tube,and heater? Like if i have a heater then rockwork around it but with gaps and its near the filter and my pump which will blow towards the middle do you think it will stop any sort of bacteria or life to form there or stop my tank from heating properly,and also can sombody answer my question from above?

I wouldnt keep live rock out of water for more than an hour or two. You'll have killer die off from even that amount of time.

i tried to keep my filter intake and heater away from my rocks when I was running my 55g. It will allow more waterflow and circulation.

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