    Yeah, I was happy to see the itty bitty bright red tube worms survived the cycle. I was worried about them but there was nothing I could do since they're all attached to the rocks.

    I'm going to put the snails and crabs back in (they've been in a tiny holding tank so they wouldn't have to be in with the cycle. I don't plan on adding any fish until after I get back from New Jersey (if I go, since it would be the month of August and maybe Sept). I figure by then the tank should be stablized a bit. Does that sound like a decent plan?

    I may add a few more of the cuc before then. Need to do more research into what I should get invert wise. If I were to try easy corals, like zoas, when would be the best time to add them? Before fish or after?

    You can add the easy corals anytime. I had a frag tank with only corals in it. They did well (for the short time I maintained that tank).

    Up to you.

    But do start with a couple of easy zoas...or a leather...and see how it does before you spend money on something a tad more expensive.

    I'm pretty broke so no way I'll attempt anything difficult/expensive. From what I've read, the zoas are pretty beginner friendly. There is a local reef club here too that I'm thinking about joining.

    Try a green star polyp high up on your rock, if it wont survive nothing will. Zoas and mushrooms wont only add a tremendous amount of color but they are very easy to keep. In your tank with PCs I wouldnt tempt anything but the previously mentioned.

    I'll check around to see if the stores here carry the green star polyp.

    The tank has been up and running for 3.5 months now. The original hermits and snails are still doing well, and amazingly I've resisted the urge to add anything so far. Of course it helped I was out of town for almost 2 months of that time period. Today I did a 20% wc and plan on checking all the parameters tomorrow. If they all look good, I may head to the LFS and pick up something live. Not sure what that something is yet, I've been considering attempting easy corals. Another option is a pair of clownfish. I don't think I want just a lone damsel.
