I will be shortly starting a 75g FOWLR
tank. I plan to cycle it with LR
from liverocks.com. The question is, how much to start with? I think the overall target is for 120 lbs at the end. Can I start with 40 lbs of LR
and 80 lbs of what they call live base rock or some other dry base rock and let the LR
seed the base rock? or should I up the quantity of LR
? and how long will each option take to cycle?
followup question - i plan to run an Aqua-C Remora protein skimmer. in addition to the LR
, do I need another kind of filter while I wait for all the rock to be seeded and fully LR
