When i read Old-School I thought under gravel filter. Pink plastic hair curlers and taking the rock out once a month to bleach it in the sun +1 Mr_X lose the UG. and go with fine sand

Like the old Virginia slims ad used to say "You've come a long way baby"

Take it from an old time saltwater hobbyist (have had marines since 1973. First tank had a slate bottom and metal frame around it. Does that age me? lol) the wet/dry filtering system is the greatest invention for the saltwater hobbyist since sliced bread. The idea behind the undergravel was great at it's time but the drawbacks are too many. You need to be constantly cleaning underneath the plates. Too much work in my opinion. As mentioned before, lose the UG and definitely get the protein skimmer ASAP. With live rock, there is a higher risk of organism death on the rock during transportation and a skimmer will help reduce the toxicity of this. Think of this "curing" time as a "recycling" time. Keep an eye on your ammonia levels after introducing new rock.
Welcome back to the SW hobby

I believe you have a Monodactylus Argenteus and not a Mono Sebae. They are a brackish water fish that spend time in both the ocean and the rivers. Generally a bit hardier than Mono Sebaes
