for my uprgrade..... i have my tank, sitting on a chest that my grandfather carved from hand. it looks pretty sweet imo and means a lot to me. it perfectly fits the 30" for a 29 gallon. so questions for transferring everything; my tank is completely cycled, if i add another 15-20 lbs of DRY rock, will it still go through a cycle? i am also going to be mounting the lights, coming up from the chest. Im dosing to 4ppm every other day right now, to keep the BB going, but it finished cycling about a week ago. i was really tempted to add some coral today, but i knew i would be transferring everything, and didn't want to put stress on anything.....lol good fishkeeping also got some of my scream town costume!!!! woooo. so, how long should i wait, after transferring about 25-28 lbs of live rock and 15-20 of dry rock to a 29 gallon, to add coral?

You are gonna see a cycle, only tests will tell you how long you'll wait, I'm guessing 2 weeks

thats what i figured. I'm going to transfer all of the rock and water over, once i buy some new sand. what do you think of extra fine white sand? i gotta go get another timer for these lights too!! but i figured I'm not going to run these lights at all, until i'm ready to add coral so i don't have to deal with algae. I'm still debating on what kind of cleanup crew i want
