Just joined the forum, what a valuable tool! Thank you already!
i have had a few freshwater aquariums, but just installed a salt water. It has been cycling for almost a month, so far so good.
Here is the question. I have just gotten back from Jamaica on vacation where I went snorkeling to see our little friends in their natural habitat, just gorgeous. I managed to get a few kong shells, live rock, and dead sea urcheon shells, and a cup or two of sand back home. Should i put that in my aquarium as is? I would have thought it would have been the best thing ever, but I reading things about boiling first ect?? Also, will this affect my cycle again?
Would love to get your opinion and guidance on this guys and gals. Thanks so much.
