I've got a 55gal tank with a couple of damsels that's been cycled for 8 months or so. I've just placed my order with Liverocks.com (thanks again Zack for 70# worth. I have an empty 30 gal
tank that I'm going to put the extisting fish in temporarily, while curing/cycling the new LR
in the main display tank.
Regarding water changes, how often, and how much? From what I've read/heard, 50% every day (or every other day) seems to commonplace, but that still seems quite pretty brutal to me, and so I'd like a sanity check.
Also, should I take this opportunity while the main tank is broken down to really scrub through the substrate (crushed coral/shell)? Once I put the LR
on top, I don't see ever cleaning underneath it ever again.
