The one piece in the middle was as big as my chest. Took some real maneuvering to get it in there. Didn't want to break up something so nice so it is almost half of the tank. It's on the right.

Here's my tank all cleared up this morning. Ran my tests and everything seems fine...except no ammonia.

Also, have some red bulbs starting to appear on my rocks, what are they?

just wanted to toss you some info about cycling with LIVE rock because I read this post yesturday and it so happen to be the day I was going to go to the store and get some live rock to start my tanks cycle. The pieces I got were curing and have some die off on them that I didnt notice to much till I put it in my tank. So i got an old toothbursh and scrubbed them a little bit. but what I found was if you have enough water movement the stuff wont ever hit the sand and will be picked up by your filter. I have a 29 gallon tank with a Korilia 1050 in it right now and it doesnt let anything hit the bottom of the tank. I think down the road I may down grade to a 750 but for now Im keeping it. dont really know if its hurting anything or will hurt anything.

Im currently still waiting on my 750 to arrive so im using my biowheel and uv filter to move my water. I had no progression in my cycle this morning, so I threw an uncooked shrimp in and hit up black friday...where I broke down . I went into my lfs and got a piece of fiji lr. It was beautiful. It is red and contrasts wonderfully with my caribbean lr. Then there were salt water friends with deals... I ended up walking out with 2a true clowns and some hermit crab. Hoping they survive the cycle, because the price sure was right. They seemed quite happy to be in my tank. The clowns are swimming all over the place and ate once I fed them. Must be much better having all that room instead of a 20 gal ful of clowns. And my crab crawled up the side of the tank, came back down and found the shrimp. I took pics, will post once im not at work.

You really should have waited. Your clowns are going to suffer and the crabs may die. Having fish go through a cycle burns their gills and it never heals. You'll have to do many PWC's to keep your ammonia low, which is going to prolong the cycling process.

I know I should have, but didn't. Im not too worried about it since I have my weekend coming up to watch over it at the start.

Going to take much longer than a weekend. Hopefully you don't lose anything. Keep testing and be ready to do a lot of PWC's.
