Update!!!

Well that was heated @.@. thank you Romad! I will like it here! As to advice and listening I would love to wait! But my friend is adamant about adding fish in a week.
UPDATE
I am getting a 125 gallon now and it has been in use at their personal home for quite some time with already thriving fish. So would that speed up the time? or...? Other than that this was great advice and I will take it as needed ! ^.^ Thank you so much!

I apologize about this little argument. I moved it to its own thread as not to highjack yours. I was half of this argument and I hope it doesn't give you a bad impression of our forum. We are a good bunch of people here that usually get along... Again, I am sorry.

Is it a breakdown and then set right back up at your house? I don't think this will be a problem. There might be a mini-cycle depending on the amount of time it takes to get from his house to yours. Is he running a Deep Sand Bed? The complete mix up and replacement of his sand bed could also create a cycle where you will see a short ammonia spike. I think you should be ok though.

We want pictures!

What fish are in there? Is this tank a reef?

I will definitely update the list of what you can put in this tank once you let me know what is already in it.

Kind of off topic >.> My 28 gallon saltwater just finished cycling, and all the hitchiker decide to come out to play. What are they? And are they dangerous? We see lots of flea like things. A few bigger shrimp things. Something that looks like snowflakes and on the wall of the tank. Some baby snails. A black snail (what is this? I dont even..), and LOTS of sperm looking creatures swimming. We currently have the live rock, hermit crab, 4 turbo snails, and 1 blood red fire shrimp. Do the hitchhikers bother them (I saw the sperm creatures in one snails shell before the snail put all of itself out there)? and Should I worry? I have some pictures if you want to identitfy
Edit: After reasearch i beliebe the fleas are some type of plankton, the shrimp things are amphipods, The snowflake is a hydroid, and then snails. I have pictures as well

All these things are good. The fleas are copepods. I am not sure what the "sperm" things are, I will have to see a pic...
