Fill your HOB filter with poly-fill and let it run it will clean up your water after it's clean rinse the ploy fill and save it. You can reuse it.

Bio spria wont start coraline growth it helps to start the bio cycle (Cycling a Saltwater Aquarium) that makes you tank safe to add fish. To start coraline algae growth you'll need a small piece of rock that has some on it. This will seed the tank. Keep up with water changes and it will soon become a pain in the neck lol

If you didnt use all live rock then you will have to introduce an ammonia source. At that point you would then start testing to see how the cycle moves forward, ammonia, nitrites and then nitrates.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
