Austinsdad, thanks! Ammonia explanation makes perfect sense. The live rock I bought was supposed to be cured, I think, because it was kept in a large shallow tank with lights and skimmer and circulation. The substrate was also supposed to be 'good to go' because it came wet. In any case, I obviously have some learnin' to do.

I will continue to read, promise.

I don't put too much trust in the live sand being "live". It has to go through digging it up, package, shipping and sitting on the store's shelf...
