Well, I plucked out about three bristle worms (two dead already - one trying to make a U-turn back into the rock). There are three sea squirts that have zero chance of making it. But I'm optimistic. My last go with live rock had far less on it at the beginning and it didn't disappoint.

Well that's good to hear. I wouldn't be worried about bristle worms they are good guys. My last batch of live rock I made a mistake of not scrubbing it down first. There were pockets all mudded up that hasn't helped parameters in my tank. I'd put money there is still some in the system still to this day, years later.

Rock has been in the tank for a week or two. Good coralline coverage. The macro algae that was on it has turned green and is growing (not sure if this is a good or bad thing). Also found an aiptasia anemone. Aiptasia-x is in the mail. Added a clown a couple days ago. Acts kind of quirky but seems health. Insists on staying under the protein skimmer.

Have you checked your ammonia levels to see if the tank has cycled? Usually it takes longer than a week or two.

I've been testing the water often. Today ammonia and nitrite was 0 and nitrates were either 10 or 20 ppm depending one which light I held the test tube under. I've been doing small 10% water changes every other day (mostly because I left the RODI running for a couple days by accident and have a huge bin of water I'd hate to dump). I was cycling the tank for about three weeks with rotting shrimp and base rock before I added the live rock.
