I really want to stay away from using shrimp and took some others advise and just wanted to see what everyone thought. my tank had been fresh water and had been dry for about 3 weeks to a month. I filled it with fresh water got everything water, the next day I added salt and got the sg
stable, then added live sand. about 5 hours later I have added 25 pounds of live rock, (tank is 29). so my question is (and what ive heard) is that this will get the cycle going. I really diddnt think about it untill today but I hope that it doesnt have any adverse affects on the live rock?
and if this is ok, how long should the cycle be? I will be checking everything daily so more out of curiosity
