You are getting a lot of good advice. If you are running 2 HOB filters you could change one into a fuge without to much trouble. YouTube - DIY Aquaclear Refugium Mod

We have about 50# of rock in there now, half is live half is not. We are also using media from a brackish water tank.

Cycling fishless with fish food the parameters are already

Ph- 8.2
Nh3-1.0
No2- 5.0
No3- .50

Why should we remove the air pumps just curious?

u can use wavemaker and direct it at the surface to have oxygen in there....someone already explain why u might want to remove it...its something like the bubbles will splash and u will see salt on top of your tank...sorry my language is bad...afraid there will be miscommunicate....better ask someone expert or maybe u can try search somewhere here....

Power heads would be better for circulation; you can adjust the direction of the flow too. Air stones and air pumps will generate "salt creep"; tiny splashes of salt will start accumulating on everything. And IMO, I would have all the rock in for the cycling process. Buying LR from the LFS is expensive. You were smart to start with some LR and dry rock.

He does want to move to power-heads later on but the money is tight now from buying everything for this tank. We already had the air pumps and wanted more flow in the tank for now. We found a cheap place for live rock, 5-8$ a pound for all different kinds. Pretty cheap to me.
