I'm about to start a build on my first SW
tank (a FOWLR
). I have 2 questions on cycling the tank.
I plan on using BRS dry Fiji rock, and will cure the rock for several weeks prior to starting the tank cycle. When I do start the cycle (using the guide here: http://www.aquariumadvice.com/cycle-your-salt-tank/
1. Do I need to run a filter (if, so, should there be carbon in it)? Or, is the circulation pump all that is needed?
2. Should I run the cycle with the cured rock in the tank?
Sorry for the newbie questions, but I'm new to SW
