And so it begins!! The 55 is setup in the basement with all of my existing rock (minus the pieces seeding at work) complete with powerheads, heater, and 2 blue damsels. (yes i know fish-in cycling is a slight against the fish Gods but its the only viable option for us) i am going to bring home the seeded rock from work tomorrow night and hope to all thats holy that the purple coralline will grow. Oh and after taking a step back and looking at the rock in the 55 made me realize something.... I def need ALOT more rock.. Thats going on my list of things to buy in the next two or so weeks.

once you add the pieces of rock from work, it wont be a cycle. those pieces should be well established with beneficial bacteria. and then the damsels will just continue to provide the fuel for the bacteria to continue to colonize the rest of your rock.

right?

Itll prob still mini-cycle a bit but 2 baby damsels in a 55 shouldnt be too much of a bio-load. Holy crap Jesse!! I remember when we were just starting out with sw and we couldnt even tell the difference between a live rock and algae, now youve got the principles and causes of cycling and the such down pat. Lol does this mean its time for us to help the newbies?? Lol
