I use a few pieces of LR, but not too many. I think that the bacteria sooner or later will grow on the egg crate and glass/acrylic, but to help stablize a new clean system, I would add some LR Wink

I do not worry about PH and never have. As for stability, that has more about consumption vs addition more than about the presence of LR or not Wink

I'm thinking about getting brightwells zeolite stones and run them in a reactor and dose mb7 and vodka like I do on my display... I'm thinking the stones might do well and I wouldn't need live rock... Hmmmmm..
I will get it cycled with Rock and then play... Lol

Why not just run the LR in the sump and after the systems starts to stablize start removing small amounts at a time until the system is stable without it.
