Reef Saver Dry Aquarium Live Rock - Bulk Reef Supply
if you read the questions and FAQ they clearly state that while the reef saver rock is pretty clean, the always recommend curing it in a separate container for 4-6 weeks before putting it in an established tank.
I have a 75 gallon reef tank with only 60 pounds of live rock I want to buy 50 pounds of reef save dry rock but what is the process to do to add it to my existing tank without a problem

The Reef Saver Rock is the cleanest of the rock so you don't have to worry about a cycle when adding it to an existing tank. You will get the best results by giving the rock a bit of a cure before adding it to the tank though. The simplest thing to do is to grab a container large enough to submerge the rock. Fill it up with your rock and some saltwater, throw a heater in it and let it sit for 4-6 weeks.
I'm looking to add some dry rock to my existing setup? I will not be removing any of my current live rock I would just be adding the dry rock. So can I just put it right in or is there something I need to do to it first? Thanks for the help........Chris Turo

We would always recommend cycling any rock outside of an existing aquarium before adding to a tank with livestock, though as far as rock goes the Reef Saver rock is by far the cleanest rock out of the box.
do you need to cure reef saver rock the same as you would live rock or is it fairly free of organics?

We would advise cycling any type rock from any source because it just isn't worth the risk of your live stock not too. As far as the rock goes though, the reef saver is by far the cleanest of any of the rocks right off the bat.
does this rock have to acclimate
Question by: lynda on Oct 24, 2013 10:26:00 AM
The rock isn't alive so it itself doesn't need to be acclimated. We would however recommend cycling any rock from any source being at least cycled before adding to an existing aquarium to make sure there isn't any risk to your existing livestock.
