    not enough LR

    Well its more than enough as long as your only gong to do corals, but when you add other critters you need to have more.

I do keep a 2.5 gal tank with live brine shrimp in it for treats. Liquid fry feed may be hard to find, but I know they...

    Well my LFS here and its a super duper LFS too boot, sets up tanks all the time, and sells and uses nothing but fully cycled ready to go live rock.
