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...

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
