cycling question
how old were you when you didn't need training wheels anymore?

ok, seriously...i am cycling a 29g cube with ls/lr. i'm wondering...if i took one or two pieces of live rock from my 14g cube and put them in the big tank, would it help the cycle go faster? could/would that upset the perfect balance i have in my 14g?

It would help, but not by much. It just has the bacteria needed to fast track the spread to the other rocks and sand. Only a tank full of Cured Rock would be sufficient to put live stock in almost immediately.

ok, well then i think i'll just leave well enough alone and let it do its thing. :)

So what is the differnce live rock and cured rock?

Live Rock has die off in transport. Cured Live Rock, is Rock that has been given the time for the die off to go away and the rock to regrow the bacteria needed to sustain life.

i've been reading about that very thing. brian's explanation is so much simpler to understand!!

bohmert 01-31-2013 07:21 PM

Yes he did say it simpler

does this mean that brian has a simple mind or that he has explained this process so many times, he just uses crib notes now?
