We have about 6 pounds of rock in there. One is pretty big and that is where the chalk bass sleeps and the other is small where the tiger pistol made his new den! The clowns dont even cate about the rock... Lol.

We added half of the rock yesterday and half the day before that. There was not an ammonia spile either days, we were careful not to disturb the sand bed while removing these rocks.

What would happen if you were to disturb the bed

Well it's good you havent had an ammo spike. Maybe add the clown or chalk bass today just so it is less crowded in there? It's just removing stress, it wouldnt hurt anything.

I was thinking about that, but then i thought if we added 3 fish in a matter of 2 days that could be too quick and shock the system.. Thoughts?

And krocky, if you disturb the sand bed if will kick up alot of ammonia because its buried

I guess, but your system was established right? Idk im just paranoid i guess

Plus, the skimmer isnt producing anything..does that mean nothing will be taken out of the water until it does?
