My tank is 72 gallons. It's been up for a little over three months. I replaced my lighting with PC Fluorescents about three weeks ago. I've noticed much more growth on my existing LR recently. I have some small green broadleaf plants, about 4 feather dusters, some nice coraline recently.
I just removed my canister filter. I was having a problem with cyano. And thought I would add some more LR.
I've been reading the thread about raising liverock off of the sand. I'm thinking I might do that this weekend and add some additional rock while I'm at it.
Right now I only have some (4) shrimp and some (about) 10 snails and a black spiney urchin. I lost my fish to an ich break. I took them out to treat them with copper and lost all of them. The tank has been fishless for about 4 weeks now. I have a few blue green chromis in QT right now that I plan to add to the tank in about 2 1/2 weeks.
if you can set it up in another container and make sure its cured then you shouldnt have any problems. Plus if you have hitchhikers, you will have a better chance of gettting rid of them in a seperate container than when you have it set up in your show tank
