I got my base rock and water in the tank! Painted the back of it black and am using my koraili 1050 and it doesnt seem to be to much flow.

Will post some pictures later today. Should I put anything in it to jump start the cycle or is that pointless till I get my live rock.

well decided to go check out a LFS that I dont really like to much for freshwater fish so havent considered them as much of an option for me to get things from. However They do have alot of SW fish and rocks probably one of the bigger selections for SW in town. So I went in today and looked at their stuff and found they had very nice live rock with good coraline algae on it and the price was only 6$ a LB and its 9-12 every other place. So I picked up "4" Lbs they said but it was truly more like 7-9lbs. while doing this I told him I was cycling my tank and he said it would be good to put a couple damsels in the tank for a fish in cycle. I said I didnt want to do a fish in cycle however though a long conversation with him he persuaded me that a fish in cycle was the way to go. So I picked up 2x Blue Damsels and he said that after the cycle he would be more then happy to take them back and allow me to put the 8$ (4$ each) on the fish in my stock list when the time came.

So how do I know if I have to much circulation for corals? Im using a Korilia 1050 right now because the other one I have is smaller then I thought so I dont know if I need to buy a different GPH power-head. The damsels dont mind it at all I don't think. when I put food in it never hits the bottom. If a 1050 is to much for corals what GPH should I go with?

Posting Some Pictures so far. Im not a big fan of the rock scape but Im not messing with it to much right now because I am planning on getting at least 15lbs of dry rock and 5lbs of live rock, just not sure if I should get 5lbs of small rock or one big piece. Id like to bring the rock I put in it towards the glass so that it isnt just all stacked on the back wall.

Tell me what you think, I dont have any lights yet so the pictures are kind of dark. I hope to order a double Bright LED tomorrow during blackfriday or Monday when ever they go on sale. getting a 24-36" light so that I can put it on my 40 gallon that doesnt have a light right now either after I get my t5ho.

I'm curious, how did he persuade you?

Also, you'll have a dickens of a time catching those guys without ripping your rockwork apart. They're pretty mean to boot, so keeping them isn't really a good option either.

im fine with removing my rock work, I plan on removing them the day I do the 50% water change after the cycle is finished. So ill redo my rock work then.
