Live Rock Removal


Recommended Posts

It was recommended, initially, that I add all the live rock I had into my tank to help get the cycle going at full speed (which is roughly 12lbs in a 6 gallon tank). Currently, my Ammonia has dropped to under .25, my Nitrites are still pretty high, and Nitrates are high as well, so I'm wondering, would it be advisable to begin removing some of the rock and aquascaping the tank? Or should I just leave the rock in until the cycle is complete?


Thanks :happy:

Your cycle may slow some but it will happen either way. I cycled my 29g Biocube with 25lbs of dried rock and 5lbs of live rock. Took about 4 weeks.
