    When will I start getting those animals and stuff in my DSB, or shoud I add them manually, and where would I get them, or should I just give it time?

    I have 10KG's live rock in my tank, but so far I see no kreepy crawlies in my DSB.
    Running for 4 weeks. Got 1 hitchhiker crab in the sump. Should I get rid of him? Will he eat the copopods?
