I didn't dry the oyster shell out... I just drained most of the water out, that's why I didn't label water volumes... you are going to add water to it to make the cement anyways. You could put it in the creek I would have done that if I didn't have an ocean near by. If you have a SW
tank already set-up you might want to put the SW
from the water changes into a container to soak the rock for an extra week in SW
just to make sure it's good. Not all rock will cure at the same rate so always test before the rock is introduced to fish.
