This is a pretty long thread, sorry if it was discussed already. But, you could pretty easily cycle with just base rock. That stuff causes pretty high ammonia spikes once it's underwater again.

Poor water circulation?

I do get a pretty good return of nasty foam in the collection chamber every 3 days or so.
But okay, I'll trim back the feeding a bit and monitor parameters for awhile.

Do I really need a skimmer?

I have a 90g FOWLER pretty lightly stocked (2 Chromis, Yellow Tang, Clown, Wrasse, and the some CUC)
I do weekly 30% WCs.
Do I need to run a skimmer? It's loud and causes salt build up on top of...

Double strip lighting?

I currently have a single strip fixture for my 90g fowler with a coralife 50/50 bulb.
The fixture is aging and I'll probably replace it soon.
Would a double strip better? If so, what combination of...

I'm exactly sure what would be most appropriate. But, being a smaller volume tank, and a reef system, I'm thinking of some kind of sump or something to expand the water volume as much as possible.

I didn't see him eat at the store, was advised that he was a slightly better eater then most. I'll contact the store and see what they were giving him.

Sump options

I have a 90g fowler with a HOB skimmer.
The tank is in a classroom and I'd like to install a sump to help quiet the noise and also increase water volume.
The tank has been up about a year now...

It will be placed in the DT to build up the existing LR so I'm not too concerned if there is anything alive on it right away.

Raccoon Butterfly compatibility

I like the look of them and one is available but charts state they are fish only and could eat inverts.
Live aqauria states-


Would this include crabs, cleaner shrimp, and CUC's?

I assume/ attribute the ammonia spike to dead matter left on the rock (even after srubbing) decaying.


Probably not a bad idea, just see if something happens.

K, so I should do water changes then?
I understand the point of water changes in curing LR is to avoid killing off established bacteria from high Amm. levels.

Curing LR

Can I use old, display tank water from PWCs to cure some LR.
It's no big deal to mix fresh but would save me some time and salt.

If it was dry it's most likely not "live" anymore.
It's probably just plain old sand by now so I would save the saltwater and give it a good rinse with tap. The more you rinse the faster your water...
