Welcome to AA first of all. The tank doesn't cycle that easy especially saltwater ones. and 11lbs of live rock for 29gallon is too little, you might need more, though you can mix it like other peeps here 75% base rock (BR) is cheaper and then 25% Live Rock (LR
). Also, I was told to add bio spira, but don't do that, this hobby needs patience, so let the nature do its cycling. Please read the articles that are provided here
It will help you to know how to cycle the tank and how long it takes. Please don't add the hermit crabs yet, cause they will die in it. Also, always do the readings, get the test kit, the parameters are very important while you're cycling your tank to see the ammonia and nitrite spike.
I hope this helps.
