So, if I understand correctly, you are saying that using a shrimp to produce the ammonia necessary to begin the cycle is not necessary
when you are curing Live Rock? And that is because the critters/etc on the LR
will die off and produce the ammonia themselves?
Wouldn't adding the shrimp begin the process faster than waiting for the die off (maybe only a couple of days though)? It would seem to me that an additional source of ammonia would assist the cycle better. Maybe I'm offbase, and I appreciate any corrections (as I will be doing this very, very soon!
