    Hi Guys,

    Im looking for dead rock.

    I can get from my LFS, but i thought ill first here if you guys have any.

    Also, what is the Ratio of rock to the tank size you have?

    Thanks

    Martin

    I usually go with about 1kg to 10l of water, but there is no set figure for that.
    It depends alot on what other type of filtration you have, obviously the more live rock the better as there is more real estate for bacteria therefore better filtration of water, less nitrates etc..
    It also depends on your water volume and stocking levels
    If you have good mechanical filtration (good skimmer etc) then you can get away with less rock.
    It also depends on the look you want to achieve in your display tank.

    +- 2 weeks time, might even wait another 4weeks longer.

    Still a few things i need to buy, before starting to cycle the tank
