Raj usually has some live rocks.
I'm only not sure how much cycled they are.

I don't think that you should continue adding any fish or corals.
Cycling should be at least 6 weeks, even if you put already cycled live rocks inside.

Trust me, I know how hard is to be patient, but if you manage to do proper cycling, you will have much more success later.
This link might help you with that. It's explained very nicely:

Maybe I could help you with aquascaping..... what did you have on your mind?

Aquascaping is your preference but its usually done before adding water especially if you ppan to use glues to stick pieces together, try to make places for fish to hide and well and consider the type of fish you want to keep. Also keep in mind that if you place the rock work to close the any glass you wont be able to clean the hlass properly with out toppling rocks or having to move them...

I will make some pics of my aquarium and post them in the next few days.
You might get some ideas.

I like a bit unusual looks :wink:

Also I can tell you my "secret" hehe - How to connect rocks in a safe and stable structure?
This is what I did:
- First i put rocks in the position that I like
- then I drilled holes in the areas where I plan to connect the rocks between each other,
- Then I put plastic cable ties through the holes and connected them (few ties in each hole - to make sure they will hold the rocks strongly).
- But, before I totally tighten them up, I put superglue between the rocks and then tighten the plastic ties as much is possible to make sure that rocks will be connected very strongly and that they will be stable.
- Because i put my rocks in the pylon structure which almost reaches the surface (of 24 inches deep tank) I needed to be sure that any rock will not detach and possibly make a damage. So, when I finished the construction I grabbed the entire structure in the base and lifted it up and then rotated it down and then up again to make sure that everything will stay in the place.

Then I put them in the aquarium and added coral sand....

Don't worry about white plastic cable ties - they do look ugly, but you can put them in the position where they aren't visible too much.... and even if they are visible, they will be covered eventually with corals and coraline algae... so nobody will know they are there.

(sorry if my English is not perfect because I am European living in Trinidad)

Yes, I use Loctite Gel.

You can find it in Bhagwansingh. I think it's around 45 TTD for one.
It's made of Cyanoacrylate which is not toxic. And gel allows you to glue stuff inside the water.


As for light, I use LED lights.
You can check by Raj, or online.

Actually, you probably can.
Take the rocks out, connect them how you want and put them back in Aquarium. Just make sure to keep them constantly wet while they are out so that live rocks wouldn't die...

Sorry, I just came back from Arima (Chai fish farm)
In that shop there they have everything.
So I got RESUN UV-07 Sterilizer for 1050 TTD.
Good stuff though and maybe only 100 TTD or so more than original price in the USA.

If You just wrote this post earlier heheh I'm sorry.

I have reef octopus 2000 HOB, and it happened to me before to overflow in few occasions.....
Try to lift the cup higher.
Also I removed sponge from left side. That thing makes more problems than benefits. Because if you clean aquarium or something, garbage from tank will fill up that sponge and lift it up and stop the flow, and then almost all water will go in the cup and over flow it.
