So with this upgrade I will be including my current tanks water and bio load a few small fish, assorted crabs, snails, shrimp and 40 or so corals half LPS half SPS and 40lbs of rock. The big question is all about the new dry rock I will need to add around 150-200lbs. Can I add the new dry rock along with my current 40lbs of live rock with all my corals on them and my current live stock to the new tank, fill it with 40 gal. old water and the rest new water and be good to go without cycling the dry rock first separately? My thought here is if the bio load does not change the current live rock should be able to take care of it. Or am I thinking of this all wrong? Does the water volume have an effect on bio filter? Does the addition of the new dry rock have an effect on bio filter?
