You want to shoot for 1-2lbs / gal, so if you have 10 lbs LR then I would say you should add 20-25 lbs of rock either live or dry so your bb can establish a healthy population.

No need to as the shrimp decays it will feed your bacti Once your cycled add any livestock slowly so the BB can keep up with the new load.

I was thinking about stock. I was thinking:
*a four stripes damsel fish "dascyllus melanurus" (as my centre piece fish)
*Some yellow clown gobies "gobiodon okinawae"
*And either some strawberry dotty backs or purple dotty backs.


What's your take on the stock list, how many of the small ones?
I like the black, white, purple/pink and yellow theme so if something doesn't work please suggest something else (:
