Exclamation New Nano 6 gallon Salt Water Aquarium

I am going to recieve my new Nano 6 gallon Salt Water Aquarium very soon. I want to establish a new reef system. First I will just let the aquarium cycle itself for 3 weeks, then I will purchase cured rocks, 6 lbs. of it, and let that cycle for 2 - 4 weeks, and then, I wil purchase some or one coral to it and place it in the tank. Is there any advice I should receive in doing this?

I would cycle everything at the same time. Saves time and water changes.

I agree. Cycle the tank and cure the LR at the same time. Be careful doing a SW tank with that size tank. Because of small water volume it`s not going to be easy and will require much dilligence. BTW welcome to AA
