Check this out!! I don't know if you can see it in the picture. I see tiny, tiny corals poking out from a tube like thing. They are on the piece of live rock I got. Will cycling kill them? Is it true I'll have to start seeing nitrites before the tank will actually cycle? I have both ammonia and nitrates, but no nitrites. I guess the sad thing is the GSP may eat them when he gets in the tank

You will see all kinds of life forms growing on Live Rock. The lil critters like that normally survive the cyclying process. And I have no idea if your GSP will eat them or not.
