    Cliff can correct me on this if I am wrong, but DRY rock doesn't cure. It is just that, dead DRY rock. Your LIVE rock and live sand will seed the dead rock and give it life. No cycling on DRY rock. ...

    180 gallons! Man, I can only imagine. Maybe some day...in my basement. Do you think I could smuggle that into the basement without the wife noticing? Hmmm.

    So, from what I have gathered reading the various posts in this forum, low level nitrates (btwn 5-10ppm) aren't particularly bad for Zoas. Is that the general consensus?
