I've posted in another section about sand choices for my newest tank but I have several other questions too (like that's something new for me).
If I choose to put the black sand in this tank I won't be able to 'seed' the sand from my 'old' tank to help speed up the cycling process (difference in color). So, my question is fairly basic but I'd like to confirm it with the guru's here......I will essentially be starting a new tank (with cured live rock) and therefore it won't benefit me to try to speed up the cycling process right?
I know that's a pretty general question but I just want to make sure I'm on track here. I'm picking up my liverock this weekend and filling up the tank too.....should I stop at the store for my raw shrimp to cycle?
