I do plan to, yes.. I want to cycle the hirocks with a dead shrimp first to get the tank going...
I put the rocks in the tank with about 6" of fresh water last night. I'm trying to decide on a plan of action. I haven't found any playsand yet (been to 7 stores), so I'm in a rut.
I could finish filling with tap (well) water, dump in the salt, turn on the PH
's and then add a shrimp, and put the sand in later.
Other option would be to set up my RODI
and drain the tank before refilling with RODI
Either way, I want the tank to be ready before I order any LR
. I'm kinda bummed that I couldn't get the rock to stack very high. I may add some more hirocks before I get some LR
. I can't afford much more, this has already been a very expensive hobby!
