    Hi guys just a general enquiry with regards to live rock and sand, my tanks been running 9 months now and although it had rock that came with the tank i bought a bit more from my lfs. It has cycled. (i hope)
    Although at the moment am getting gha and am working on that, what i would like to find out is when will the actual rock become live rock and what to look for or tell that everything is hunky dory, With regards to the live rock and signs is there anything i add to help but don't want to upset my parameters to much with additives. TIA

    If ammonia and nitrite test 0 then your live rock is ok

    GHA is part of the process, I think we all get it some time or another in our lives. Urchins and snails will help. Just try avoid Bryopsis at all costs, it's the WS of plants!
