Just keep the rock submerged under water while you do it and you should be fine with no cycle. If the skimmer gives you grief, then yeah, I'd turn it off.

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

I want to put in good fish and don't want the damsels to mess with them. I think I will start with a pink spotted goby. Or a pair of black and white clowns.

Ok damsels are out! Water back in the tank as well as the rock. How long can I go without any fish in the tank? Should I get something today or can I wait a few days or a week.

Very sad day for the hobby today in the phoenix metro area. My favorite lfs (Pet Inc) is closing although everything is 50% off. I picked up the smallest six line wrasse they had as well as a pair of clowns. I also got two korilia 750 for $50. I think I got a good deal. I wasn't liking the water movement I was trying with the zoomed powersweep 228.
