Live rock cycling question

Recommended Posts

Set up my 40b this weekend and picked up 5 lbs of live rock to go with my 40 lbs of dry. I've never cycled with live rock and sand before. It's always been a completely dry start. I have bio spira and ammonia. Should I still dose ammonia and dump in the bio spira with the live rock in there?

The liverock will eventually seed the dry rock.

 

Depending on the condition of the liverock will depend on the tanks cycling

 

I didn't dose ammonia with my dry rock/liverock tank, I let it process on it's own.

I agree....the only thing to dose regularly at this point is patience.  😁
