im def going to rinse it off to rinse off any dead stuff on the rock nd junk but should i just go to the LFS
and buy some live rock i dont really trust the LFS
store out here because alot of the fish have alot of sickness so if i do end up getting the LR
from the LFs
how would i go about riddin it of hazardous stuff or should i rinse the rock put it in the tank with the unseeded sand and then add the LR
and the bad stuff should die down by doing water changes nd stuff
