Hi Ive got a 20gal Nano tank, had it set up for about 2 months with about 6 kilos of live rock.. Gonna get about another 5 kilos of LR, will I have to wait for it to cycle again or not??? couldnt buy it all in the first place due to not having the money!! Would like to start stocking fish soon but dont know whether to wait for it to cycle again??? Ive got 3 hermit crabs and 3 turbo snails and one very small BTA and loads of bits that have come in on the LR...

If the rock is fully cycled and you transport it in water you should be ok but if its not cycled then yes you will have to waite for it to cycle. If its not cycled you will probably loose the BTA so you might want to find a new home for it and it will out grow your tank quick and they dont do well in young tanks, sorry.

Fully cured LR should have gone thru all the cycles ammo, trites and trates just like cycled LR. If the rock has any foul oder to it then it needs to cycle if it doesnt smell bad then it should be ok.
