Well, the 20 Tall went out the window and I got a Long instead.
Ive been working all afternoon on the stand. Its to the point where I just need to put sides on it, make doors and paint/stain/seal it.
I also picked up a 29gallon for a QT tank (so I now have a 55g, 29g QT and 20g sump sitting here empty, and a 29g FW
planted running in the front living room).
55lbs of BR showed up today from Marcorocks (out of 80lbs). They shipped the 2 boxes on different days:\
I still have my equipment coming. Everything looks scheduled to be delivered Thursday or Friday except for the RO
filter. They just shipped it UPS today, and I doubt it is in the 1 day transit area for me. Oh well, teaches me to wait to the last minute to order something.
Finally figured out where I am going to put the tank. I was going to have it in my game room, but it was going to be just an inch or 2 too close to the pool table, so I decided to have it in the front living room.
Lets hope that my RO
unit arrives friday so I dont do something stupid and go buy water.
Now, for my questions
If I buy 30lbs or so of Live Rock, and put it in the tank when I first fill it up, do I still need to cycle the tank, or would it just be Curing the LR
? I plan on getting LR
from the local club, or from a LFS
, and don't plan on having it out of water for long. I am just trying to figure out where I would be at that point so I know what I'd have to monitor the most.
