reposting this pic of live rock from your aiptasia thread, so the cycling thread can be closed out completed.

merely that one corner pic of live rock shows all the detail we needed on page one, excellent skip cycle thread here. It will help others to see how to make use of the best rock you could own.

it was incredibly good quality rock, coralline chips avail for seeding, lots of good bacteria to prevent dinos in your system. An open fanworm showing the rock had to be months or years underwater before your tank.

we had worked so hard helping your cycle we didn’t want to leave the thread incomplete, now it’s all set.

this is the kind of rock they run Macna conventions with.
