So question then im guessing its a salt tank as well. Do you cycle the tank with fresh water or salt water just to get the BB grown?

If you used live rock you prob wont see a cycle.

Thats how i do a new tank. live rock from an existing tank and fish can go right in.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
