    New live rock from established aquarium -

    The Anemone does need good light. Aptasia can harm the fish it will sting them and you as well, the best way I have found to get rid of them is peppermint shrimp.

    Could I be cycled and fish ready?

    Your tank sounds like it has a bio-filter started. Just remember the bio-filter is a living thing and is always in a state of flux, growing and dieing off. If you move to fast in a new tank you can very easily over take the filter and start a new cycle. By moving slow and only adding live...

    Best online live rock supply?????

    A lot of time you can get great deals on a local reef club forum. I have seen people getting out of the hobby and selling LR for $2 or $3 a pound.

    TheAquatect's 150g in-wall build

    So the rock I have is Florida limestone, its still very porous but it is dense compared to some "typical" reef rock. Between it and the DSB, there will be more than enough surface area for bacteria to thrive. Cool.

    TheAquatect's 150g in-wall build

    Nice start I will be tagging along as well, Your stand looks like it will hold a truck great job, I like to over build as well. Nice framing as to. Just a thought the rock you have looks like very solid rock (not porous) it is the porous rock that has the best nullifying bacteria that live deep...

    Wait Delprincipe Some of Them here do not understand the TBS process, all your rock is good Live Rock and should not have to much of a cycle, if you follow the TBS procedure. They sale lots of complete LR setups with great success. IMO slow down do the water changes TBS recommends, e-mail or...

    New to Hobby, Help setting up 29 Gallon

    You do not have to have a skimmer, but you will have to do more water changes. The Hang on filter is ok you will need to change the filters out every two weeks or they can become a nitrate factory. With the right lights you can keep just about any corals, but fish you could only have three or...
