Hi All,\r\nI thought I'd let you know I'm two weeks into the tank curing of the live rock. The first few day were like we were living in a salt marsh! The smell was, shall we say, real round! A couple scrubbings and massive water changes to mellow the ammonia levels. \r\n\r\nI will include some pictures, the live rock will move until my wife and I are satisfied with the layout. \r\n\r\nThe best news is that we here, in little old Syracuse NY, have our very own reef specialty shop! Shall I endorse them on the product reviews side? They are awesome!\r\n\r\nNext I am getting a decent protein skimmer, I'l post for that as well.\r\n\r\nAny suggestions on the tank? There is 50+ lbs of FL LR, I have it stacked so the interior is quite open (for eventual Banggai Cardinal - local bred!)\r\n\r\nMy wife would prefer less rock, less cluttered. I said it was suggested to have 2lb/G because the aquacltured FL LR is more dense/less porous and need for filtering. What do you think?\r\n\r\nSorry for the long windyness!
