Make sure your rock is on the bottom of tank so if you get any sand movers your rocks won't fall. Looks great keep up the good work!

It's a good start! Looks like you have some nice caves and crevice for fish to hide. You can always add base rock as you go. Nice job so far!

Depends in how much you have and if you started with any amount of live rock. By the end of the cycle, it should all be live.

What size tank? If go higher with the rock to give it height and the illusion of a bigger tank. Try and keep the sides open a little for ow to make it around.
