Good point, I never knew they were schoolers! Ill go check live Aquaria to see of there is any other small fish I like

. In the mean time, I'm going on vacation for 2 weeks and I'm leaving Saturday. I want to toss a dead raw shrimp in the tank and just leave it in there while gone to cycle the tank. Will this work, and is there a certain way I need to do it?

Also while I'm typing (lol) do I need to still have my lights on a schedule while I'm gone or can I just leave them off? I can purchase a timer if I need to.

That's fine, that's what I did. And lights need to stay off or you'll cause an algae bloom. Sounds good, I love live aquaria

Okay ill just leave em off the whole time them. The live rock doesn't need light right? Btw since I just bought all aqua cultured live rock from the start, I read that it practically cycles a tank ? Is this true?

If I could, I would like to add a cuc before I leave but not if they will be harmed

Probably, but every tank is different. I let mine set a month to make sure

In a hose? I thought you just dropped the shrimp in the tank
