if that's what your rock looks like you've got nohting to worry about with cycling. That is considered base rock. Some circulation would be good to have during your cycle, at least near the surface to keep your gas exchange going for pH.

That looks like great base rock. Just rinse teh dust off and then place it in the tank. In a few months it will be LR. Add the LR to the tank now to cycle the tank. Just get some uncured LR and use that to cycle your tank.

thanks guys!

Can't wait to see what happens now when I put some live rock in

Also thanks for mentioning Uncured LR.. I was just about to get cured and pay all that extra $$ for nothing.
