Starting 94 Gal Cycle

Hey guys,

I've got my 94 gal tank setup and ready to be cycled. I want to include a bunch of live rock down the road anyway, so should I cycle using it? Should I cycle using damsels? Both?


Let me know what you guys recommend...I was also thinking about order the show size from the following link, I wanted to see if you thought this was a good selection or if you could link me to a better deal, or suggest better rock:

Thanks,
brian

The live rock is a perfect way to cycle a tank. I cycled my 210 with it. Ironically I used the same rock from the same place that you are ordering from. Its good rock, but here is a place thats better. I ordered some additional rock from these guys this summer. Hands down better rock.

Also, please do not use fish to cycle, the rock is more than sufficient. No need to torture any fish with that method.

Any suggestions on specific rock from LiveRocks? I have a 94gal corner tank with blue/green background.
