Ok, I have a 72 gallon bowfront with crushed coral on the bottom, and 60 lbs of "cured" live rock that I added on Friday. I realize that due to the length of shipment time that it took to get the LR
to me (four days), that I will have to let the rock cycle again, but what else will I need to do before adding fish?? I have a cascade 1000 cannister (265 gph
) filter system, but do I need a powerhead also? I have been given so many different opinions from the pet store and the rock supplier I am just about ready to forget it!!!
How long will it take to cycle? When I came home from work today there seems to be a whitish/clear stringy substance on the rock. Does anyone know what this is? When and how much water should I change? Anyone use "Nitromax" or "Rock-Prep"??? Do I need to add bacteria to my system?? I know I have alot of questions, but it seems like everything I am doing is going wrong.. Thanks.
