question about aquascaping/live rock

i have some frags coming today and i need to do some major rearranging in my 29g. is it ok to put much of the live rock from the tank into a bucket of tank water while i work? it won't be in there for more than an hour or so.

Should be fine. If you can get so flow into the buckets it would be even better, but an hour shouldn't have any adverse effects.

I've done it with no issues. Had to remove majority of it once to rehome a damsel.

That Kenya tree will grow like a weed if it likes your param's. Mine has tripled in height and now reaches the top of my power head in a 20 tall.

your command is my wish. or is that the other way around? LOL

14g


29g


of course, if i was coming at them with food, all fish would be front and center but noooo, i had the camera so they conspire...quick, here she comes again with the camera...EVERYBODY BEHIND THE ROCKS!!!!

until everything is acclimated, i have put the new stuff near the bottom. i swear, the kenya tree was so tiny, i wasn't even sure there was anything ON the frag plug. after a day in the tank, it "grew" to almost 1"! the lavender mushrooms are da bomb and the little feather dusters are a very pretty yellow. still waiting for the long polyp leather to really come out. right now, he looks like a miniature of my toadstool mushroom. :)

Things look great! I have a question about your tank though. Is the glass rounded in the corners? If so, have you found it difficult to scrape the corraline off the walls? Just curious.

yes, the front corners of both tanks are rounded and yes, the mag float doesn't cut it. i find i have to go snorkeling every few days and clean the corners with a little sponge sort of algae scraper. it is one of the few design flaws i have found with these biocubes. i have one chestnut cowrie in the 14g and 2 in the 29g and also the 29g has the sea urchin. these guys go a long way in keeping he glass clean but for some reason, they skip right on by those rounded corners. go figure!
