just curious as to when you do your first water change? i'm 2 weeks into this, done with cycling. i thought i heard someone say you change it right before or right after you add your first fish? just curious, could someone help me out with that one?:)

Are you sure you're done with the cycle? 2 weeks seems very fast.

 

You probably don't need to change your water for a little while. If you test it and everything looks fine, I'd imagine there's no reason to change it. I'd start maybe a week after you add stuff, just because your tank will begin to use the nutrients.

 

Do you only have your cured live rock in it right now?

Do a water change right before adding your first fish, coral or invertebrate. I don't mean your CUC either, they'll do fine in "dirty" water.
