    A very warm belated welcome from me, Iggy.

    Please can you elaborate on why you should not place substrate in the tank, while curing the rock? You should have placed the substrate in the tank already, when you started and added the live rock. Right in the beginning.

    The critters living on the live rock is mostly very good to have.

    Have a search for "live rock hitchhikers".....

    This should not cause a problem having your substrate in when your liverock is curing...
