Will it be ok to leave the rock out or should I put it back in after I bag my fish.

If you want to avoid bacteria die off, keep the rock wet.

Then take it out and use old tank water mixed in a 1-10 ratio with H2O2 while you scrub it.

OK I was wondering if I should scrub it in regular water or a mixture of both tank water and fresh water. Thanks Sniperhank.

What should I use to clean rock of all contaminates. Is there something I can soak it in that would remove all the contaminates.

I'm thinking I'm going to have to move this tank without having to recycle it. Time is running out. What would I have to do to accomplish this ta add k. Keep in mind that I want to clean the tank, drill it for a internal overflow box and do the plumbing.
