That's a bunch of money down the drain that doesn't need to be spent. Enough pods should come off the rock in time

Ok well do you plan to cycle your tank? And turbo snails can go in, I think two would be fine, one even. You can even get a small nassarius or cerith snail to dig into the SAND. I love my nassarius snails <3. Get a few dwarf hermits too , like 3. And a cleaner shrimp or peppermint shrimp.
@bribo12 true. I try planting my tanks (for mandarin purposes) but they wont need it.

Instead of 1-2 Nassarius, you can get:

Update: gravel removed. Tomorrow I will go get sand. Ill take the rocks back out, put the sand in and put the rocks back in. I do like the snail ideal.
