Hmm... Sounds cool... So... I read the QT tank is a must and I totally agree, however with this being a brand new tank, do I still need to do this since there is no other fish at this time? I plan to cycle it with a couple of shrimp from the grocery store.

anybody ever used the "Dr. Tims One and Only" supposed to cycle in 24 hrs?
Its in the Dr. Foster and Smith magazine..

You probably don't need a qt right now, but later down the road it would be good. Another way to speed cycle a tank is with live rock and live sand, and some fish stores sell salt water from established tanks.

One of my friends told me that There was some bacteria you can buy that will bring your rock and sand to life? Is this true? Might be cheaper then buying it, as I already have it, its just not live anymore.
