Talking Marco Rocks in my Tank.

Well today I checked out my readings and everything was good. I kind of figured it would not be long before there was not cycle or even need to go threw with a curing process. When I got my dry rocks I quickly Rinse threw with tap water making sure everything was off and no dead critter where stuck to my rock. Any how day one I had a small spike in ammonia did a water change and 3 days later no signs of ammonia or nitrates or Nitrite. I know it may be premature in putting my rocks in but with my inspection of my rocks I made sure I got everything off. But this what my tank looks like now.









I will check for ammonia tomorrow and see if I get a spike but I am confident there will not be. If so I have prepared SW mix for a change if needed.... Hope you guy like it.

I had the same problem. I bought about 60#s and it did not look like it was enough, so I added 21# more. I may have 4.5# too much but what can you do.

By the way good looking rock. I am sure the wait was worth it...

Looks pretty good. Before you know it you`ll have nitrifying bacteria teeming all over it.

If you do make sure he has them in stock before ordering. Don't pre- order he might for get about you.

Thanks for the advice....I have still not gotten any emails back from them...I normally would never consider doing business with someone this inconsiderate, but alot of people here have ordered, so I guess it is worth the poor service...

Like I was telling some of the other I don't think he's that bad I just think he does not have enough help to runs his business and has to much on his plate to keep up with every order. I believe that's how some people end up not getting there orders or there rocks. But I am happy with mine and I would only order from him if they are absolutely in stock...
