Adding LR that is not cured to a tank that has residents can cause a problem... A mini cycle can happen.
Can u get cured LR? I would wait till the sand is done that way you have less stuff in the way when taking out those shells. Or when half done add a few pieces of cured rock to help the bacteria...
so if you can't get cured LR you may want to cure it out of the tank first....
Garbage can PH and heater for a few weeks then add it to the tank after its cures.

I was wondering how I could avoid a sand storm and get the sand in its proper place
turn off anything that cause water movement"what I did was, placed the unopened bag of LS to the bottom of my tank, then used a knife to cut open the side of the package then slowly released the sand.I had a bit of a sandstorm but it didnt last long. Go Kings!

90 gal SW tank / cascade 700 canister fliter / Coralife super skimmer / 3x402 PH / 100lbs LS / 80 lbs LR / 30lbs base rock / 2x65w & 2x96w PC / 2 moonlights
