At whatever cost please do not add fish to an uncycled tank... I know it was the way to do it years ago, but today, it is deemed as cruel punishment. Just get a capful of common everyday ammonia with no additives in it... It will add the ammonia and kick start the cycle....

ok, so, instead of the money i was gonna spend on Live Sand, I'll just add another 5 lbs of LR.

I like that Idea better anyway.

That rating is based on the canister being empty. I have one and once media is placed in them you will not get much more than about 250-300 GPH. If all trays have some sort of media, it will be about 200 GPH. They are quite weak.
