I'm building my first SW
tank - 60 gal
reef - with the help of a friend. She used to have a 125 gal
reef tank, so she's fairly knowledgeable, but she's never fishless cycled a tank before.
I want to fishless cycle, but I'm not sure what order things need to go in after that. Should I cycle the tank and add live rock when the cycle is done? Cycle the tank with the live rock in it, doing regular PWCs, so the live rock can help get the bacteria built up? I know that the cycle needs to be done before adding fish & soft corals, but I'm not sure where live rock fits into the process. @.@
