I'm just starting off my 1st sw
tank and just want to make sure I have this right so I don't waste $$ converting live rock into dead rock or killing fish.
Here is what I'm planning on doing:
Set up the tank with salt water and argonite.
Order my LR
Once it arrives add it all to the tank.
Monitor levels until the ammonia and nitrite are 0
At this point the LR
is cured and the tank should be "cycled" as the LR
is full of good bacteria and ready for fish right?
I'm asking because I've read a few posts which seem to say that you should use the dead shrimp cycle method before adding LR
...why would you do that?
