I'd add it all now if possible. If you add it later, it will need to be fully cured or it will start another cycle.

also i did a complete test today and the levels are
ph~ 7.8
salinity is 1.028
is my cycling going in the right direction?
Did you add anything like fish food, or a cocktail shrimp? If it's truly cured "live" rock, then you probably won't see any ammonia/nitrites - but you should eventually see some nitrates over time.

i didnt use a shrimp just the fully cured LR. i added some flake fish food last night to see if anything would change within a few days. i will def. wait longer if i need to or not for the cycle, im in no hurry to hurt my future dwarf seahorses ! so i should add the LR all at once, what about other things like plants, etc. (eg. caulerpa etc.)

live the life you love, love the life you live!
