When you add LR you may experience a mini cycle, or even another full cycle. Look for cured LR to minimize the die off. I'd hold off on adding anything else.

Take it nice and easy, Adam. After adding LR just keep reading on AA for a while and watch your params. It'd be much less stressful for you to do so while there aren't hundreds of dollars of coral in the tank.

Most importantly: ENJOY! Take this time to make future plans for corals and fish and research each one's individual needs. You'll be that much more prepared when the time comes.

Well the only thing I'm planning on adding to the tank any time soon is more live rock, and maybe more fish at about the same pace I am now, which isn't terribly much. It looks like Yipes will have to wait for his anemone.

I don't plan on putting anything other than cured LR into the tank of course, but cured LR sure is expensive around here. The best price I can find is $6.50/lb.

I guess I'll start a new thread about LR since it doesn't really fit in here.
