Hey guys, i have a 10 gallon that i have recently setup. I got about 12-14LBS of rock in it, i was wondering would it be bad to add more? Is it bad to add too much live rock???

 

Thanks

depends on which look you like. the general rule is 1 - 1.5 lbs per gallon, but i prefer a open look more. more rock does mean more filtration, but you also need to make sure you have enough flow to make use of the extra filtration.

I think the amount of LR you use is purely to your taste, and the inhabitants.

 

 

Too much without proper flow creates dead spots and detritus build-up. Largely to taste but not purely to taste.
