Ive been setting up my 75gal as a reef tank, I have about 80 to 90lbs of uncured live rock and 20lbs of live sand, my question is how long does LR
take to cure and will it cycle at the same time?
The rock has been in for 1 1/2 weeks(NO
water changes as of yet,Just adding) . I have an algae bloom taking place,and I have found numerous little critters,thousands of TINY,TINY little white things jumping around the rock... 6 to 10 round little dots with many legs on the glass. Numerous tube worms 1 has to be a 1/4 thick,a pistol shrimp and a larger ominous looking shrimp . I have a 700 gph
pumping from the sump and a 950 on a closed loop ( soon to be a 1800,3 foot head to get 1350 at SCWD).and two 350gph powerheads,a coralife skimmer rated for a 125 gal
, A coralife 265 watt power compact w/moonlights. Should I be doing anything that Im not aware of or any tips.(this is my very first attempt at a saltwater tank) Or do I just sit back and wait for the day to add my cleaning crew and other inhabitants. Any tips, critizisms, are greatly welcome.
Help a noob...
