Ok, so here is the plan.
I have 30lbs. of hirock.com product and 30lbs of LR
coming. What seems to be the most humane thing would be to let the tank cycle with rocks. I was going to wait a couple of weeks then add in a clean up crew (just to keep the algae growth down and keep everything under control). Once the tank has leveled out and things seem to be normal, I would add in my fish.
Does this seem to be a good and humane plane? If not, please explain what I am missing, or how this could be better.
