As you keep Calcium and Alkalinity where they need to be, you will really see the benefit with coraline spreading.
I will see how things go with the fossil coral and maybe remove them later in the process. My fish do not need anymore stress right now.
Is there any reason to keep the water that was in the rubbermaid tub that I took from the tank to help break in the new rock or should I get rid of it? It's about 10 gallons.
