2 pieces of Live Rock, 3 pieces of "Reef Ready" Live Rock(purple ones), live sand, and thats it. I havent done ANY water changes whatsoever, only topped off the tank once with straight RO
water. When i first started the cycle, i had 1 piece of shrimp in there, that almost completely dissolved on its own, after that i put 2 more pieces in, took em out when they were almost completely dissolved.
I've read to turn up the heat to try and speed up the cycle process so my temp is at 84deg.
