    Hi guys! It's been a while. Long story short, had a 40B reef, and we sold our house and moved in with my future mother in law so I downsized to a 29biocube. We're in the process of building a house, so my poor tank has been terribly neglected. I'm down to 1 clown and 1 watchman goby so I'm going to downsize again to a 10 gallon.
    My plan is to use stuff I already have:
    An aquaclear 30 hob filter
    100 watt heater (with dial) might need smaller watt
    2 12" panorama pro LEDs
    Live rock currently in tank
    Have some powerheads, not sure if I'll need them.

    I bought new aragonite sand, but I plan to use some of the sand that's in the tank now to "seed" it.

    My question is, do I need to wait for a cycle since I'm using the same rocks and some sand?

    You will more then likely see a cycle, even using existing rock and some sand.
