I have found only aiptasia as bad hitchhikers on my rock. You are more likely to get bad hitchhikers from the store like crabs, and mantis shrimp.

Ok, i would totally do this, but im having a hard time convincing the parents. The place im thinkong of is in between the fridge and the oven, like a countertop in between. And in front of it across the kitchen it a window. The blings are usually closed on it though. Would this spot work?

Do you have a picture of the spot? You probably don't want it too close to the oven. If the blinds are barely open I would say that, that isn't an issue.

Heres the spot. And it never recieved direct sun so thats good. And a couple more questions, is my king-225 powerhead good enough? And could i use just a standard 10 gallon aqueon filter? Should i replace the filter cartridge before cycling my sw tank?
