Live rock in part cycled tank?
 
Hi all, I'm in the middle of cycling my SW tank (pure ammonia and bacteria
culture method) Ammonia has spiked and fallen to 0, Nitrite has risen and is
peaking at the moment.

I wasn't going to have live rock in the tank but after seeing some of the
photo's on various forums on the net I now feel the need!!!!!

My question is: Can the LR be put into the tank right away (to help with the
cycle process) or will the nitrite damage the rock dwellers?

Thanks

Terry

if anything, the live rock will speed up the cycle, depending on if its
cured or not though...

It's cured, sitting in tanks at my LFS. At 10 per KG seems a pretty good
buy too.

cured rock will benefit the tank, not hinder it. go for it. as long as youre
not putting in fish youre not hurting the tank.
