Raw shrimp from your grocery store will work. The gray ones not red when they are red they are already cooked

Nvm I read it wrong. Got ya. My rock and skimmer came directly off my 55. Just took it down Sunday also. I'm sure all the bacteria is still in the skimmer.

No problem. The rock will speed up the cycle. The skimmer juice is organic waste and wouldn't recommend dumping that in the tank if that's what you mean. And no problem, AA is a great forum.

I personally never have, but that's because of the $35 shipping. These are top quality companies that have many happy customers. They know exactly what they're doing and have fair prices. It's just the shipping that I've never been fond of.
