Everything is right on track. Start cycling your tank right now and you`ll be good to go.

I dont think you really need to do water change until tank is cycled.

Cool how your tank came with all those inverts!

We've all been down this road and have asked "dumb" questions ourselves.


Oh really Kurt??? I resemble that remark.

Bubbymac, around here, there is no such thing as a dumb question. What is dumb IMO is not asking.

Water changes might help the crabs and snails have a chance to live but it will prolong the cycle. If the Rock was cured and live, you might be in decent shape as well.

the tank didn't come with them the rock i purchased did. another rock i pruchased has a bunch of little shrimp looking things working on it. it is kinda cool watching them. I never thought it would be so cool just to watch rock....

I agree that even the rock is cool. I have been watching neat little things emerge from the LR - button polyps, tiny snails, sea stars, serpent stars, a feather duster and a couple of bristle worms (arghh!). If you can enjoy even these small developments the time will pass quickly until you add more to your tank. Have fun and good luck!
