There's about 100 lbs. of base/lace rock arranged in such a way to provide caves and other shelters.

One thing that I was wondering about, the Sailfin Tang has shown some initial aggression. That's diminished a lot. Could those be tail-scrapes from the Tang?

Also, I've read that live rock COULD introduce ick or velvet. No?

no, the ich/velvet needs a fish host......

The scrapes could be scale loss from close encounters and escape maneuvers IMO.

Is it possible to have it come in from an infected tank. I mean if the tank had ich in it, at the store, and hadn't been fallow for 6-8 weeks, could it be slightly possible that the ich resides on the rock? Or are the tomites free swimming? Or is that just crazy talk?

I think this is the case....
