I'm very excited to say the least! LOL After the tank is full then all I ahve to do is setup the sump. Which leads me to this question----

If the tank is full and sump isn't running can I still add live rock? I wanted to get as much rock as I can into the tank before filling the sump to account for water displacement. Or does the rock need the sump up and running to stay alive?

Part 2 of this question is if I have the sump running can I move all the LR I have over and leave the 55g fishies and corals in the 55g with no rock for a couple of days? I can still run my canister and skimmer for the fish. I kinda wanted everything in the 125g to be perfect before I move the livestock over.

Any input would be appreciated, as usual.

Thanks everyone!

Unfortunately I couldn't tell you how long your fish could stay in the 55 without consequence.

How long was your LR in the water before you had your sump hooked up? I'd love to start moving the LR now before i finish filling it up. BUT I'm not sure if i will get the sump up tomorrow or not.

Mine was in for about 2 hours before I had the sump going. It shouldn't matter though, the rock is going to be submerged in saltwater.

Maybe if I added some powerheads? Keep circulation going? I'm at the mercy of a friend who is going to come over and help me put the sump together so I don't have a definite date or time it will be running. :-(
