Good choice! And the "starter" fish mentioned to cycle.... well we know now that they won't be used. Right?

Great news! The tank is up, salted and i'm just letting the dirt/dust of the live gravel settle. Should be starting up my pumps/filters and what not tonight. I'll be adding my live rock tonight but hoping that it wont stir up enough dirt to clog the filters. Ive got some nice huge chunks of it. Hopefully ill begin the cycle tonight (well, since it's biological gravel i guess its already started to some degree.

Really? Ammonia? How much ammonia should I use? Its a 150 gal. tank.
