Even that or you could simply put 5-10 lbs of base rock in and by the time you're ready, ittl be live rock and you can seed any additional base rock with it

+1 for sure. You could add some base rock weekly even until you have enough. And the first couple pounds will be ahead of the game by having the bacteria present.

Good call

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

Good idea! I'll look around for some base rock! Hopefully this will go a lot quicker than what I had originally thought

Yeah that's actually one of the lines I used against my mother when she questioned me. Actually she's giving me a few old purses to sell on eBay for aquarium money. Hahaha she does want one!
