So I have started the beginnings of my new found hobby. After a lot of debating and realizing that I will be living in an apartment until my house is finished building, I decided to seed base rock with live rock. I did a lot of researching but all of the threads explaining the seeding process stop at needing a heater, powerhead, saltwater, base rock and live rock and just wait. My setup up is just a rubbermaid bucket, heater, powerhead, 20lbs of dry rock and 10lbs of live rock. My question is does the water need to be at the same parameters as it would be to support livestock or does the salinity just need to be right? Do you still need to do water changes? Just putting everything in a bucket and just leaving it there for a while sounds way to easy for this hobby. If anyone could tell me if that is right or what I actually need to be doing or a link to a full walk through of how to do it would be greatly appreciate it.
