I don't think it'd be an instant cycle but a very short one. What lighting do you currently have?

Fantastic, thanks!

Will one take all of the filter feeders out of the tank (meaning there wouldn't be enough food for other clams)? Sorry if that sounds confusing.

I wouldn't think so. They aren't that efficient

I have a derasa mainly because it's the lowest light needing of the bunch but I'd love a maxima, to me it looks amazing.

I have mine 24" under (on sandbed) a 4-bulb aquatic life T5 - seems good to me!

Update and questions:

Today I put in the rock from LA (45 lbs), and I really like the quick rockscape I made. I will post pictures later. I also added the water from the garbage bin my LR was in. Is it normal for this water (from the garbage bin) to be yellowish? Also, I was wondering how you all would recommend cycling and what I would need for it.

Hopefully tomorrow I will have all of the equipment running and I will add some LR from my 55g.

I was also looking at some corals on LA, and I found some I really like, I will get around to posting those eventually, lol.

I also wanted to know how often I should do PWCs. I have had the LR in the garbage bin since Thurs, and didn't change the water. Should I be changing the water in the 125g soon?
Thanks for reading!
