cool... okay, i dunno much about duncans, but zoas and mushrooms shall do fine in ur tank... BTA needs stability of your tank first... since you just got a liverock, we'll see if the tank established yet and then I think it's possible for you to add BTA, but I let the experts chime in on this...

Wait, so when I add my fish after its finished cycling (starting cycle on Sunday) I can add zoas and mushrooms? Also, about the goby and the percs. can I mix without agression and without pushing the stocking limits?

HI Thom,

I don't mean for you to add everything together... I'm just saying that your lights will be sufficient for those... As for your fish, I would start with the Two false perculas first.... Monitor them for a month... if everything goes well and it's all stable, you can start adding the Goby and the corals if you want, but not too many at one time... I hope that clarifies better.

Base rock is dry rock that no longer has the beneficial bacteria on it needed to break down ammonia and nitrites. If cured while cycling the tank then it will become live over time. It is a much cheaper alternative then buying all LR. I wish yrs ago someone would have told be about BR. I got 200 lbs of LR at 8.99 a lb. I guess you see what I mean.

Well, for cycling I was planning on doing fishless but menards didn't have pure ammonia and my dad didn't want to get shrimp because he got ancy and wanted fish right away so he got two clowns from Petland (I had no say, he got them on the way home from work) and about four days after getting them one of them died. I think I found the culprit..... on the bottom of my live rock the is like a white covering over it that is smoothe. Anyone know what this is? We got a new computer a few days ago so if I find my dads camera I may be able to get a pic. The other clown is fine by the way, but I'm still worried.

I just changed some water I noticed that I had little worm like things that are about a centimeter long and are kind of white/grey clinging to my hands and wrists.
