Thanks, I think I'll transfer the corals and other inverts first, then do a 7 day in tank. Sounds like the bio filter of the rocks won't be damaged. Then I'll run skimmer and carbon for a day or two...

Pretty sure it's 19mm, a little thicker than 3/4" as i measure it. The bottom being 1.5" helps as sides are siliconed to the bottom (ie sides go all the way to the stand), more siliconed area. Seems...

Thanks, that's a very good point. I don't have any rocks directly on top of any other rocks vertically, but there's some rock slope at the sides I could better arrange. Maybe I'm better flattening...

Cycle is going slower than I'd hoped, despite putting in some live rock from my existing tank. Nitrites still hanging in there a bit. I think part of the problem was that I've had the heat too low...

I know, I know, too high and too symetrical. However, I can cut down the height easily enough if needed, i hope coral growth gives me that problem. I also plan to have less vertical corals on top and...
