    I would recommend Right Now! bacteria for a 24 hr cycle. I am a user and it works!

    See last photo here for detailed water testing using this bacteria in my 300g SW system.

    Or after the fish takes the tank over just add a moray eel or something so it will it the damsel.

    dont do 2lbs of rock per gallon you'll just have a huge ugly rock pile. with a DSB (deep sand bed) you can do 1/4lb/gallon about so you can actually do a nice aquascape.

    I am now a user of Seachem's Stability. I recently restarted after a filtration system redo my 300g setup and used Stability....no ammonia whatsoever!
    I also use it whenever I need use my 40g QT. Just add the fish, and then add the Stability daily for 7 days....done! Never have had ammonia.
