Thanks to both of you. I dont intend to do corals as lighting will be expensive. I run a fishroom which is already costing me 40 pound electricity every week so using 500w halide will make my bill go off the roof!
Anyway im gonna buy some live coral sand to go with my old ones. Do i add them few days later i start the cycling or at the same time?

Don't buy the bagged live sand, waste of money. How long would you last sitting on a shelf wrapped in plastic Better to get a cup from an up and running system Add it when you start your cycle.

I just bought live sand a couple weeks ago and it was loaded with life. Tonnes of pods and stuff so it does last hence the expiration date on the bag. That being said it was pricey and I would suggest getting a cup from an established tank.
