Yes that sounds good. No matter how much live or base you start with its all live in the end. I guess it's whatever fits your budget kind of thing not really a issue with having a healthy tank after it's all said and done.

Hey am I too late to say as much rock as you need to support the fish you are starting with. Then add more rock as you add fish?

When possible,it is best to add all your rock at startup,base plus some live.Preferably one and a half to two lbs.per gallon.The problem of course is initial expense.
Doing the right amount to start with can cut your cycle down to as little as two weeks.

Hey Rick I completely agree with you. We must have posted at the same time . I didn't see yours until I posted and I was actually responding to twitches post about slowly adding rock. It's all good .
