What's going on? I am new to this great hobby and am impressed with this great forum. I had a question about adding live rock to my FO
tank. I just finish cycling the tank. It is a 30 gallon, with bio-wheel filtration, and protein skimmer. Right now there is some ornamental dead coral and barnacle. I wanted to keep some of these ornamental decorations and add about 10-15 lbs of live rock. All the posts I have read have suggested between a 1.5 - 4 pounds of LR
per gallon ratio. Is this just for biological filration benefits or is there some other underlying principle? I plan on having a non-aggressive community tank. Any help appreciated.
