I added my shrimp to start the cycle, two days later my baserock came in so i put that in, after two weeks i added my liverock, i did this so that my levels wouldnt be too high so not as much would die off from the LR
including my hitchhickers. It doesnt really matter though, if you wait to add your LR
you may go through another mini cycle, at least i did. If you have your baserock now, and everything else you need i would start it right now, then go ahead and order your LR
, you can wait a little if you want. Maybe some other people cane recommend what they did. Good luck.
