Saw this on there web page, I guess not

"Can I add Marco Rocks right into my established tank?



We do not recommend our rock or any other rock right into an established tank.

Even though Marco Rocks has been washed and dried it will still have some trapped organic material that will break down and need to cycle before it is safe to use in your tank."

It is probably not the best idea to put strait in your tank depending on how much you are adding. I would soak it in some saltwater for a couple days and then wash it off real well. After that it should be good to go. I would suspect they advise against adding it because the organic material they are talking about can break down quickly and cause a nutrient spike in the tank.
