Hard Coral Question

I just got some hard coral for my tank. My question is...is there anything else to do other than rinse it before placing it in the tank?

Is this dead coral to be used as decoration? If so a good rinsing or even a soaking in diluted bealch water and then soaking in fresh water would work. I used to do the soaking method to clean the decorations I had in my first FO tank.

I like the look of LR now.

*180 gal Display, 100 gal basement sump, 33 gal refugium, 3x250 MH, 2x160 VHO actinics, zoos, some softies, LPS & lots of acros and other SPS.
*100 gal prop tank plumbed into main system w/ 2x96 PC lights and 1x150 MH,

Ellisz,not to hijack the thread, but what is your lighting for your 10G frag tank? Im looking at putting one together and was going to use pc lighting. What do you use and what do you frag?
