Now that the tank has settled I’ll grab some nice close up pics of the rock today. The base rock is still great stuff. Lots of coralline, sponges, tunicates, dusters, etc.

Total pod explosion already. Pods everywhere. The glass is covered with them this morning. Acros and fish before you know it! I have 2 clowns, a Royal gramma, one spot foxface, and a fire fish in QT. Caught a gorilla crab yesterday that I chopped up and fed to the QT lol! They enjoyed that treat!

What is this about? Can you explain the part 1 and 2?
I’ve always just tossed all rock in at once and let it cycle.
When you order “the package” from TBS you get a part 1 then part 2. Part 1 is all sand and the base rock (stuff on bottom of the aquascape so it’s not as “pretty”). Then after you have that in the tank and you complete your skip cycle phase (4-5 days), you get part 2 which is the premium rock, clean up crew, inverts, etc. This is done to ensure you don’t get any ammonia spike that would kill your inverts.
