Umm, well. Typical cycle time without using Fully Cured Live Rock is..........4-6 weeks. You won't be adding anything to the tank until the Trates come under 40.

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

Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard

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.
