Thanks everyone for your advice. Sorry I haven't thanked you earlier but I've been on holiday.
Just one more question please. I have been reading a bit more about dry rock and I think I am going to seed it with a piece of live rock.
As I plan on growing soft corals, is there a dry rock type that corals prefer? I apologise if thats a stupid question but I have heard people saying that dry rock is no good for corals.
My thinking is that as the dry rock will eventually become live it shouldn't matter.

You don't need to seed it with live rock if you don't want to. Besides being cheaper, dry rock is void of hitch hikers. You are "seeding" the dry rock with hitch hikers, good and/or bad.
The statement that dry rock is no good for corals is ridiculous. You are right. it will become live in a short time.

Thanks this is helping to too I want to do the same for my 79g bow. Do all the research I can now before I start. This is going to be my first reef tank and first tank in about 12 years. A lot has changed since then!
