So today I got a large 8lb piece of live rock and its very nice. so it brings my total to 13lbs of live rock and 20lbs of dry rock, do I need more rock then this for now? Maybe would consider 8-10 more lbs of base rock but no more live rock for me.

Just found a crazy looking crab in my rock that was out scavenging. its white with black stripes and looks very spider like, hes all hairy. Scared the poop out of me when I saw him because Im terrified of spiders and it looked like one but now Im very interested knowing its a crab. I cant find any pictures of it to figure out what it is.

Petrolisthes species is what it is for sure, the white and brown one. Should I remove him right a way or would it be benificial to leave him in while I do my cycle till I add corals?

failed again last night...going to try again tonight with artificial crab meat.

How do I know if my 1050 is to much flow? my damsels seem to be fine in it just debating on getting a 750 instead for xmass and just using the 1050 till then if its needed, I just dont know if it will be to strong for corals that require "Morderate" water movement. I dont understand if these means they need at least that amount of flow and having more wont hurt anything or they cant have high flow.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

ok cool, how long till after my cycle should I wait before getting my CUC? I kind of want to order them from Live Aquaria because I read they have good quality and well their stuff seems rather cheap compared to my LFS even with shipping. Is there a better place I should look into before getting them from LA?

Also that crab will not be caught he didnt go for my bait once again last night.
