    When talking about live rock does that include the artificial rock that a lot of stores are using nowadays? I prefer not to damage reefs if possible so if I can just use artificial rock that has been in a previous setup and use that to cycle then that would be great.

    If it is cured then technically it is live rock. I'm guessing they are the purple eco rocks? It should work.

    What's not funny is, if you've seen that show, do you remember the KISS Mini Golf tank, when the guys picked out fish for each KISS member? Well, I was at that Grand Opening and then at the mini golf place a month later. A month later the tank had no fish, just water.

    Great suggestions about cycling. I agree with live rock and patience as being the key. And, over course, the bigger the tank the better!!!

    When I start up a new tank I always do a major water change, pull rock and sand from one of my established tanks and use this for the new tank. Doing this I have never had to wait for a cycle. You will get a small spike in NH3 and PH4 at first in the new tank but I have been able to put fish and coral in the first day with no die-off . I know most might not have a established tank to do this with but you might have a friend that dose.
