I disagree with Anemoneman on the addition of the LR
. I suggest that you add LR
in batches, rather than all at once...here's why I think so.
When you put the first load of LR
into the tank it is going to cause some kind of mini-cycle. Maybe even if the LR
is cured. Once the tank settles down, you've then got a more stable situation with stronger bio filtration on the LR
. Then...when you add MORE LR
, the tank will be better able to handle any ammonia produced by the new rock and it is more likely that life on the rock will survive.
Spend more on your subsequent batches of LR
in order to get better quality of LR
. You can't go wrong with Liverocks.com.
If you put the whole load of LR
in at once, you're going to cause a pretty substantial cycle to take place which will be hard on the life you paid to get on the LR
