    Adding cleanup crew ( Timing )

    I have a 29 gallon that we recently set-up. The tank is cycled ( I used cured live rock and it was a half hour between the LFS and my tank )and two Clowns have been added ( Wife ran out and bought them when she heard the tank was cycled ) So they have to stay.

    Should I add the clean-up crew now before I see an out break of algae or should I wait for the time being?

    TIA

    I hope that you didin't think that because you used cured live rock that your TANK is cycled- Your rock may be cycled but NOT your tank.

    Please correct me.

    No no, the tank is cycled I went through my spike and all readings are now good:
    Am = 0
    Rite = 0
    Rate = between 5-10 ppm

    Welcome!

    I'd put them in as long as there was algae and critters to eat.
    Who says Dogs are the only creature that's happy to see you?
