    It doesn't matter what you add unless you give it time to build the necessary bacteria to aid in biological filtration. That brick will probably cause you more nitrate issues down the road. I would slow down and add live rock to the display. Rock in the sump will just be a detritus trap. I wouldn't add anymore livestock for a while.

    For one your gonna have it in the sump and it will collect nothing but detritus. Live rock in the tank has flow. Having to much of a pourus surface with no flow to keep it clean will cause problems.
