Got most of my rock in the tank yesterday and all of the sand and water. Can't wait till it clears up so I can see if I like how the rockwork looks. Post some pics then

If your processing ammonia you are right, cycling has begun. I would let it settle out for a while before starting to stock it.

Yeah just got home and checked everything again ammo-0 trite-0 trate-40ish. The live rock I put in was well established and super porous and I did put a small chunk of filter media from my 40

So I have fully acclimated one of my gsp in the tank and he seems a little bored but happy. Did a very slow drip took about 5 hours to bring the salt content up to the same as the tank. Now on to his friend. Anyone know of any coral they will not mess with?
