    Yes you can use dry rock added into an established system to create live rock. You do need more rock then you have right now if you want a decent amount of fish.

    Alright, I'll try to pick some more up this week. One medium and two small be enough?

    Also, my protein skimmer is noisy as hell, is it alright if I turn it off when I sleep until I can fix it? (I've read about a fix to it, but don't have the materials for it right now.)

    yeah, a skimmer is almost counter productive on a cycling tank, tho you might get differing opinions on that.

    Btw, thank you all for your advice, I tend to get a bit OCD and worry a lot every time I set up a new tank.

    Water has become crystal clear today. Has a mild odor, so I did an ammonia test (using an API master SW test kit) Ammonia's at .25 according to it, so I guess the cycling is started well.

    My T5 lighting is supposed to be delivered tomorrow, so I'll try to get my camera back then and get better pictures.

    I'm wondering, should this thread now be moved to the journal forum perhaps?

    You can start a jorunal, or I can move this thread for you.

    Just let me know
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Why not move it for economy sake? And maybe change the title to 29 gal FOWLR, eventual reef, if you wouldn't mind?

    In a couple of weeks, I'm going to go out of town and the pet store where I'm going sells dry rock for 2.50 a pound, so I might pick a bit up, there.

    Also, my last tank was a sixty gallon discus tank, and I didn't like using the carbon in my HOB filter, is it ok to not use it in this tank? So far I haven't, but I still have the carbon. (I'm using an aquaclear)

    Done and done

    That carbon should be OK for a FOWLR
