Hello,

I have a 220 litre tank that has the saltwater and the sand in it so far but my dry & live rock arrive today but I don't have any power heads will I need to buy them before I put the rock in or can I put the rock and wait for the cycle to finish without the power heads.

Thanks, Dan

What rock have you bought? If it was live and has been dried out you will need to soak it for a few weeks in ro to remove phosphate.

Best to get the power head now.
