The pic at top is the final way the rock will stay for now. Just need all the rock in the tank to get the water level correct.

I cycled the tank with the rock in a large rubbermaid with ammonia. Had it going since nov. Before thanksgiving. Ran ran gfo also. Took awhile to get phosphate to zero. Probably a plus that i was running behind on the build.

Hate to burst your bubble but that's not a duncan. It's actually a torch coral, you can tell by the skeleton. Duncan's have a flesh covered skeleton most other LPS do not.
