Adding more LR.....

I would like to add more LR to my 72 gal tank, I already have 45 pds and 15 of base rock. My tank has fish and corals but looks kind of empty, how can I do that without affecting the water and stock.

make sure it is completely cycled before adding it, any ammonia added to a tank with corals in could be lethal. cure it for a couple weeks in a clean rubbermaid or trash can with circulation and heating to avoid any dieoff in the tank.

It depends where you get it. If you source it out locally, ask the store if it is fullycured and how long they have had it. If you order it on-line, it depends. You will need to re-cure most LR that is shipped. If you order from liverocks.com you can get by without curing it as they suggest. It depends on transport time and packaging.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
