The lady I got it from had an engineer goby and a clown fish in the tank and moved them when I picked up the setup.

Yes. I transported the rock in the water she had in her tank. Used a big ice chest. It was out of water for maybe 30 minutes as I was aqua scaping. Sorry was writing the previous message as you wrote your last response!
Thanks!

New 46 Gallon Bowfront! Suggestions Please!!

30 min shouldn't have been enough to kill everything off... But seeing ammonia and nitrite means things aren't cycled. So, can't argue with the facts. Raise the salinity and cycle away. I'd suggest the cocktail shrimp method with how easy it is. Once you can't detect ammonia or nitrite you're ready to go after a big water change to get the nitrates down.

Put in a new PH 900gph before work today! Got my flow to around 1600gph. Hope that's sufficient!

It's so crystal clear tonight! Makes me want to put snails or something in to have something else to watch besides bristle worms! Hahaha

Looks like a sand sifting snail. Can't remember the proper name for them but a good member of clean up crew. You don't often see them as they live in the sand bed

Thanks man! I'll take it! Nothing like watching a snail cruise around! Lol

So after my ammonias hit zero do a water change and I'm ready to go?

Also, mushroom and fish acclimation. What is the best way to do this?
